Review of The Woolly Beader

Attraction details
Owner description: The Woolly Beader (formerly rockin' beads) is the vision of Garry and Donna. It was born from our desire to be our own bosses and live in a small village in Devon. What began as a plan to open the largest bead shop in the West Country has grown into a community centred craft shop selling a wide range of jewellery making materials and quality yarn. Apart from wool and beads we also sell Murano glass rods as Donna just loves to melt glass and she delights in teaching others this amazing craft. We are known for our superb customer service and knowledge in all things beady and yarny!!! We hope that customers feel really at home in our lovely spacious shop. We run our workshops to suit our customers so one to one tuition is the norm at no extra charge.

Like to pop in here when going thru Tavi, they will have relocated to Okehampton now. Nice choice, reasonable prices, friendly and helpful owners.

I was surprised to find this little gem of a place on a recent visit to Okehampton. Large and varied stock; helpful and knowledgeable staff who also put on teaching courses. Well worth a detour to visit if you are even remotely interested in beads.

Lovely big shop with a huge variety of beads.
Very friendly welcome.
Watched the owner teaching someone to make glass beads.
Great shop for jewellery makers but also good for presents.
Booked up for a couple of classes.

Most impressed by rockin beads. Very friendly and knowledgable staff who are only too happy to help the novice! They have some worksops going too and I've just signed up for Silver Clay. I'll report back when I've been!

Went in only because of this listing. There are a lot and a big variety of types styles and provenance. Many put together by the owners of the shop. Pleasant unassuming place seemingly doing a fair trade. Worth looking in.
