Bay Area Call for Crafty Sunday School Teachers

Hi Awesome Crafters!

This is a call out to all of you who have a skill you could share with your fellow crafters in our monthly revolving Sunday School class.  Could you take an hour to teach/demo one craft skill you have? So far we’ve had needle felting, knitting and crochet, but the topics are limitless!

While we’re set for this month’s CoC, we’d like to book a few Sunday School months in advance, for both San Francisco & East Bay, so let us know what you’d like to do and when!

Thanks & Happy Crafting!
