I was there once with my children because I am from out of town. One of my children (8 yo) has ADHD. The staff are helpful, kind and enthusiastic with working with the children as well as the adults. The staff loves their work and it shows..The products are exceptionally beautiful and functional as well. I highly recommend this center to anybody who loves or wants to learn about beading and more.

Jubilation Creations has been a great asset to the people I work for with developmental disabilities. They make beautiful art work that creates enhanced self esteem and pride in what they make. This shop is both an asset to the community and to the people who purchase their classes. Dr. Judy finds out what people are looking for and then provide the classes. Dr. Judy even hires people with disabilities to work in her shop. I will continue to refer people to this business as it provides a healthy, welcoming atmosphere and people have a sense of pride in what they do there.
