Family Activity Day

This is my favorite event since I love to get my boys and husband involved in my little hobby;) Bring your kiddos and/or your significant other for a fun day with textiles and crafts. There will be a scavenger hunt, fun crafts, and snacks! It will be a great opportunity to explore the world of fabric and thread with your whole family, plus you can check out the quilts of the Stitch Modern 2013 show while you’re there.
