Curbside Pickup Begins on Tuesday May 26th at SB

Hello everyone.  The state has currently updated the retail segment of Massachusetts business and we may offer curbside pickup as part of Phase 1.  I will begin offering this service beginning on Tuesday, May 26. 2020.
Curbside Pickup Hours: Tuesday-Thursday 10-2

All orders will need to be called in or messaged to me prior to pickup.  Prepayment will be required before you arrive at the store.  Once you pull up out front, I will bring the order out to your car for you.

I plan to still ship any orders that may come in over the website.
Please feel free to message me on Facebook, Direct Message me on Instagram, email me at, or call and leave a message at 413-782-0288.  Gift cards are also available.

May 2020 Event Schedule

May 2020 Class and Event Schedule – Modified for Social Distancing

I am currently working on the month of May’s online virtual classes, chain mail trunk show, and secret project.  May is usually the month that SB celebrates our anniversary and I guess we will need to do that through online means this year. 

Shop the Chain Mail Trunk Show Online – May 2-8, 2020
Update:  Kits are currently on order from Hyperlynks and as soon as I receive them into SB I will turn them around and ship right out.
Update 5/29/20 – The first shipment has arrived and those kits are being sent.  Will advise on second shipment to those still awaiting kits.



Secret Project – Great for all crafters of any skill level and open to anyone ages 12 and up. All ordered kits have been sent.  I am in the process of getting the donated kits together and will be sending those out hopefully next week.  Thanks to everyone that donated – We are able to send out 11 kits to essential/front line customers of SB.
Many of you have participated in the Secret Bead-A-Long projects in the past and I’ve been working on the next project and it has a new twist.  This project is a crafted item that is perfect to accessorize your home for all seasons.  This is a craft project (that requires you have a glue gun) and also a bead project.

Zoom Virtual Classes
The newly extended stay at home orders have been extended through May 18th for all non-essential Massachusetts businesses.  I am currently working on adding a couple more classes in for this month.  If you have a suggestion on what you would like to learn, feel free to email me at and tell me your suggestion.  Check back to see class updates.
