Closing down.

After a lot of consideration we have decided to close down The Bead Shed and head off in a different direction.

So, dear customers, it is time to give you our notice.  There is no date that we will stop trading, as it will be when the stock has been cleared.  Maybe a month, possibly 6 months, but in reality it will probably be a year or more.  We still have a lot of stock to get through.

You can now find all of our available stock listed on our new site - SoozInTheShed under the heading BEAD SHOP SALE.

Sooz In The Shed is a new venture where we will be creating quality craft kits - not just beading ones either.  Knitting, Crochet, Beadweaving, Jewellery Making and lots more.  You can find them on the link listed above.

Sooz also teaches crafts throughout Carlisle and Cumbria, check out the WORKSHOPS tab on our web page for more details.

If you would like to follow Sooz's crafty antics, which happen on a day to day basis usually, you can find me at

We would like to thank all of our customers; you have been fabulous in your continued support and returning custom.


In the meantime, if you would like anything.  Please yell, or you may find it ……gone!
