A Note from Karen regarding her Cigar Box Class...in December!

Karen had a great time with all her students at her Alice in Wonderland class this past Sunday! She had talked about an altered cigar box class tentatively scheduled for November. A LOT of people were interested and wanted to know when in November it was going to be. Well, we're going to have to wait a little longer for her class! It will be on Sunday, December 12 from 11:30-4pm. Please check your email in November to see the class description and to sign up. But, be sure to put it on your calendar today! 

Thanks again and sign ups for this class will be in November.
