"I LOVE Midwest Beads! The staff is so incredibly helpful and they treat you really well. There's another well-known Brookfield-area bead store that is very "snobby" and treats you as though you're not good enough to be shopping in their store. This is NOT the case with Midwest!! They treat you like you're one of the family and they're so willing to help you learn a new technique or suggest alternative design options. I absolutely LOVE this store and its selection of beads, accessories, etc... My only gripe? That it's not closer to my house in Watertown!" - Mary M.

"I just love going into Midwest Beads. Sometimes I have a difficult time finding just the right beads or the right color and the staff there is always so patient and helpful, which means a lot to me as I am a perfectionist and yet, they never seem to mind and are always cheerful and friendly. It is nice to walk in the door and have someone remember who you are and call you by name. The store is so organized and I can always walk right to the area that has what I need. If I can't find something, the staff finds it for me."- Mariene W.
"I have been beading for many many years. When Alice and Gary openned their first bead shop in Brookfield I was there. I've watched them grow into the wonderful business they have now. Ten years ago, my husband and I moved to Waupun. I have family in Milwaukee. We hated to leave, but I hated also to leave my best Midwest Bead Store. These people are awesome. Their bead store is awesome.. The owners and employers love the beads and love to help the people create the best beading objects they can. When I need beads, I will call and order them, but I prefer to drive an hour to come into the store. To be perfectly honest, in the beginning I have gone to other bead stores here and there and they cannot compare to the wonderful owners, employees and beads like Midwest Beads. Don't take my word for it. Go check the store out for yourself. I love the store." - Dixie
