Felting: Give it a go!
Here's your chance to sample wet or needle felting -- get your hands in fiber, have some fun and leave with a felted flower, pumpkin, or XMAS ornament. We'll be on hand to step you through the basic techniques for the project . And if you "catch the bug" of felting as so many others have, we have an Introductory Felting Class scheduled for the following Saturday that will teach you everything you need to go off and have fun creating all sorts of wonderful felt items on your own.
Both adults & children (age 8 and over) are welcome. Materials fee: $5.99.
