This is a fun hands on class, but we won't be sewing!

Bring a notebook, or sketch book. You will be taking notes, you may be cutting, gluing and coloring!

If you have been sick, or are experiencing symptoms of any kind, we expect you to stay home.

Things evolve, and we make adjustments to practices and procedures. And we are always open to suggestions on how to improve this system.
