Imagine! is more than a knit shop. It is two stores in one, really. In the front rooms, the shop is filled with gifts that are artisan crafted by individual U.S. and Canadian artists. Some of these artisans are from Chautauqua county. The store specializes in jewelry of all kinds including pieces that are produced just for Imaigne! or by Imagine!. In addition, we offer Estate Jewelry that is collectible and high-end pieces that feature gemstones, gold and silver. The idea is that you can  buy something creative that is an old or current hand-made item or you can move to the back of the store and find luxury beads and yarns to make your own inspired work of art. We have instructors who will teach you how to drill beach glass, or to wrap the beach glass in silver, gold or copper in order to fashion a piece of jewelry for you or as a gift. We also teach the basic skills for beading, fused glass, polymer clay, wire work, and many other creative jewelry-making techniques. For a current list of classes, please click classes and see individual listings or check the calendar. To see samples of the projects, stop by our store. We are open Wed-Sat 10-5 off season but between Memorial Day and Labor Day we are open 7 days a week. Imagine! is closed in the winter from January through March.
