Our hours are changing September 2, 2017

You’ve asked and we’ve listened!  Starting this fall we are changing our hours, adding new merchandise and accommodating some late night beading.  Join us each Thursday and Friday until 8pm for classes and open beading sessions.


We will be closed Sundays and Mondays, and open by appointment on Tuesdays. Wednesdays are 10am-6pm, Thursdays and Fridays 10am-8pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm.


During this new time we will be expanding our selection of beads, unique and everyday findings, pendants, and all those adorable little extras beaders crave.  We’ll also be adding more seed beads (including those sought-after two and three-hole shapes), setting up new class projects and finally getting around to all those vintage beads and crystals.  Kits and online purchasing will be available later this fall.


Our NEW store hours will be

Tuesday – By Appointment

Wednesday 10am – 6pm

Thursday & Friday 10am – 8pm (Our new LATE nights)

Saturday 10am – 4pm

Sunday & Monday – Closed


Mini Camps Summer 2017

Summer Mini Camp 2017: 

Our Kid’s Summer Mini Camp schedule adheres to the Mooresville Graded School District Schedule, beginning the first Tuesday after the last day of school, and ends the Tuesday before school begins in August. While it is not required that your child attend the entire summer, we request you register early for each session your child will attend as the spaces do fill quickly.

2017 Summer Camp Schedule:  Tuesdays  June 13th – August 22nd ~  $12.50 Per Child Per Session

 Ages 5-8 11:30am – 12:30pm

 Ages 8+ 12:45pm – 1:45 pm Beginner

 Ages 9+ 2:00pm – 3:00pm Intermediate/Returning Campers 

Our youngest campers will enjoy the earlier camp time of 11:30am to 12:30pm with age appropriate projects tailored specially for them. Our 12:45pm to 1:45pm time slot is perfect for the drop in camper or those with other camp commitments during the summer as the activities are trendy and fun yet easy. Our 2:00pm-3:00pm camp is for returning campers, regular attendees, or those that love DIY projects and are looking to build upon skills already acquired. At times, a younger child may want to attend our camps, siblings of different ages may want to attend together, so we do make exceptions. All of our camps are open to all genders. Please feel free to talk with us prior to registering your child.

During this fun-filled hour of age appropriate activities we strive to enrich each child with a love of crafting and an “I-Can-Do-It-Myself” approach. Our Kid’s Summer Camp classes are led by our incredibly talented and innovative team of Summer Camp Directors, Tanisha, Amy and Jessica.

New Summer Day Camp Classes for 2016

We have added three new camps this summer that will focus on development of your child’s talents.  Girls and Boys ages 8 and up will enjoy four half day camps. These camps will run Monday thru Thursday 10am til 2:30pm on the following dates:

Cost per camper is $150 (family discount for second child). Attend all three camps and receive a $50 discount per camper (sorry, no other discounts apply).  Coupons and other discounts are not available on summer camps. A 50% deposit is required when registering your child. Tuition must be paid in full one week prior camp to start date. All deposits are non-refundable. Space per camp session is limited to 14 campers.

All materials are included and campers will keep the projects they make.

New Items from Tucson Bead show now arriving at Ain’t Miss Bead Haven!

New arrivals from Tucson Gem and Bead Show.

New arrivals from Tucson Gem and Bead Show.

Tucson Gem and Bead Show 2014

We had a lovely time at the Winter 2014 Tucson Gem and Bead Show, and made it back home ahead of the snow.  The twice yearly show is quite famous for it’s international offering of beads, gemstones, seed beads, charms, silver, vintage, chain, findings, new artists, and old favorites – you name it and it’s probably there.

Luckily, our shipments have started to arrive as the snow has started to fall. We really enjoyed this year’s show.  Honestly, it’s hard work, but I really enjoy it every year.  Never mind the back and arm pain from bending, carrying , and packing up all those beads, after all, there were BEADS everywhere.  The weather was beautiful, 70’s and sunny blue skies in February!! While we worked hard, we also had a little fun around Tucson. We spent time at a local fair complete with midway food and games, bumped into old friends, and visited the outdoor markets (think dinosaurs, gemstones as big as your kitchen table, and amethyst geodes taller than 6 feet), .  

Not to worry, we brought back lots of goodies – including new Fine Silver charms and pendants, Czech beads (including 3mm), old world bronze reproduction findings, beaded chains, lovely druzy in cabachons, pendants & links, bead strands, and sweet little tassels to name a few.  We replenished our supply of leather and findings including the Regaliz line, and added new lines of ceramic beads, Petal beads and more.

We added new lines  of re-imagined antique castings, and exquisite hand-made glass beads all made here in the USA ~ .

Many thanks to the USPS for getting things here ahead of the upcoming snowstorm…hopefully the rest is not too far behind. Thank you to our wonderful staff, friends and family who helped run the shop. In the meantime we will get busy and get these new items out as quickly as possible. Stay tuned for more picture!

Enjoy the opportunity to dazzle your fellow beaders with your handiwork, and be dazzled in return. Our socials are a tremendous source of inspiration, determination, original designs, and beautiful jewelry made by local beaders. We encourage you to attend, use what you already have (c’mon, we beaders all hoard beads, lol), and dedicate a little time to your hobby – most of us are so busy with our day to day routines that we forget to carve out a little time to replenish our spirits with an activity we love that brings us so much joy – not to mention, fabulously fashionable jewelry to wear!

Meeting space and lite refreshments are provided – feel free to bring something to share – your smile, your beadwork, and on occasion, that wonderful dessert you keep telling us about!

What we ask you to bring:
Your beads, beading supplies, tools, beading mat, etc.
A couple of hours to relax, create, and share.

While we offer a generous 25% discount for your purchases during Meet-Up / B.Y.O.B. Socials, we are not able to provide gratis beading supplies for meetups.
