AGES: Adults, teens, & kids 10 years and up with parent supervision


MATERIALS: All supplies included. BYOY is encouraged, but not mandatory (bring your own chunky yarn and use up your scrap bin yarn/ little balls leftover from finished/abandoned projects to have the best color selection). Pen to jot down ideas, beverage/snacks if desired.
