I love taking classes at Jubili. Knowing how they offer classes to special needs people, I feel that by supporting this business I am also helping. The staff is so helpful and knowledgable. I hope more people take advantage of the unique classes they offer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to let more people know about all the different classes they teach. It gives one an opportunity to try new things they may otherwise not be able to.

My son attends Jubili Creations 4 days a week and looks forward to it. He is excited and happy with all the different crafts and jewelry that he makes. The environment and atmosphere is inviting and the people who works with him are very nurturing and caring. Dr. Weinstein herself is a very caring and nurturing person who cares about all her attendees.

After graduating high school at 21 my son had no where to go to continue being out in this world. Luckily we found Jubilation Creations created by the most wonderful person..Dr. Judy Weinstein.
At JC, my son shows his talent by creating the most unique and beautiful items, eg. Bracelets, bowls, lamps, picture frames, key chains, Christmas Ornaments, door hangers, and the best of all A Sweater and mathching hat. These are just a few of the many items that helps Mitri feel good about himself and gives him a sense of PURPOSE IN THIS LIFE. He is very happy going there and looks forward to the days he attends. Jubilation Creations has helped him Greatly and many other Special Needs clients.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Has brouhgt out the many creative talents my son has. This Organizaion has made my son Have a Sense of Purpose in This Life and is very Happy attending JC.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to make it more wheel chair accessible.

Hi My name is Patricia Linthicum By going to Jubilation Creations had made me feel comfortable, relaxing and meeting other ddd clients like myself. It has made my day lovely and cant never wait to go back there again to learn more of arts and crafts. I love it there!!!!!! The staff workers are great and very patient with me. Dr. Judy is great lady that has talent and understanding of different levels with ddd clients........

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see Dr Judy expand her company to larger space to have clients and store itself to have bigger space and storage....... where all her classes need to have more shelfs and organized where no one can trip over each other

Hi,

I come from Philadelphia...I usually get lost, but the trip is definitely worth the effort. Being greeted at the door as soon as I come in, the helpful advice, the laughter because I am somewhat color blind and the overall feeling of wellness are the bonuses I relish. Whether I am buying yarn or beads, the crafting technician is right on target with a wealth of knowledge. It's a pity that you aren't located in Philadelphia...I would probably move in and make myself a royal pain by being in the store practically 24/7. Good wishes for a successful 2014!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None!

I worked at Jubili Beads & Yarns starting the year of 2005 until the year of 2011. During that time I have seen Jubili advance into something much greater than an average retail store. The owner Dr. Judy Weinstein, is an innovator; a creative and a strategic thinker who exemplifies how to run a successful business. Jubiliation Creations is by far the best source for people of special needs with varying age groups and abilities. The staff provides individual attention, along with support and commitment towards each student. The projects that each student creates varies from capabilities to interest. The staff's project planning consists of new creative projects, along with ideas from the students. Seeing the progression of students' capabilities and interests has been life changing. For example, someone who might not have had an interest in knitting turns into an extraordinary knitter who can knit hats, scarves, and vests. Seeing the beautiful pieces of work that the students have created makes not only the instructors proud, but also the students.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the company.

I started going to Jubili in 2006 for flameworking , glass bead classes. I have become a bit of a regular. During that time I have watched Judy grow the Jubilation Creations program from a handful of students and participants to a well received, well run program that is accessible to so many people. What I enjoy is seeing the Jubilation Creations handiwork, and students while I am at Jubili for my own interests. The atmosphere created by the diversity of people in the Jubili space ( flameworkers, beaders, families,couples, friends, birthday parties, knitters, Jubilation Creation participants)at the same time is in a word, wonderful. We all get the chance to create art in one space.
