February & March at TCL

Our famous Felt Bunnies workshop for kids is back!



It may not feel like it out there, but February has arrived, and March is just around the corner. We’ve got some great workshops happening during both months.  Come on by for a Spa Night — we had requests for a new one before the last one was even over! Or, let us show you how to refresh your look by turning old or broken jewelry into brand new show-stoppers with our Reinvent Your Jewelry class. We’ve even got a couple of new specialized knit & crochet classes with Shaina, plus Decoupage Treasure Box workshops for both kids and adults.
Also, there’s still space in Classmate Valentines (leave the glue and glitter to us and keep it off your dining room table!) and Beaded Earrings. And, of course, don’t forget about Drop-in Saturdays!

Love Bugs from Every Day’s a Holiday book by Heidi Kenney
