time & date!!

Whether you missed a class that you really wanted to join, 
our scheduled date conflicts with work or family events or 
you just want to be a "maker for a day" our
 DROP IN DIY options are 
perfect for:
-a super fun girlfriends craft day

makers making!!
The DROP IN DIY projects offered are a combination of past workshops, 
all-time favorite & most requested projects, seasonal fun and more! 
Our DROP IN DIY menu will grow and change thru the months & seasons so be sure to 
check back often to see what's new! 

Happy makers sharing their fabulous DIY creations!
Our 
DROP IN DIY
modus operandi is a bit different from our usual workshop setting.
You will be provided a kit that includes all the 
supplies to create your chosen project. 
Tools and all items needed will all be available and at the ready while your creating. 
You will also be provided with either a step by step instruction sheet or a 
video tutorial to follow. Drop in DIY's are not instructor driven so you can work at your 
own pace...take your time or get it done quick! Just another perk 
of the DROP IN DIY option!
 Of course there will always be someone available to assist if you have questions
or need a hand.
