Q: Where is your current workspace located?

A: I mostly bead at my bead store, since I have so much to choose from there. I keep a limited amount of beads at home in an ottoman. When I’m at home I bead in the living room on a small folding task table in front of the TV.

Bead Weaving with Carole Ohl, Bead Store OwnerQ: What do you love about your beading space?

A: What’s not to love about having a bead store for a beading space!

Bead Weaving with Carole Ohl, Bead Store OwnerQ: What’s the ONE thing you would change about your beading space if you could?

A: At home, I would like an easy and fast way to put away my mess, since I bead in the living room. I would love to design a piece of furniture that could be easily transformed from a small beading table to a small sideboard piece that could stay right in the room where you’re beading. No one would ever know there was a mess in there. I am a messy beader!
