SOFAAR will be hosting its second annual Come Play with Us communal fibre-crafting event at the Annapolis Royal Firehall again this year.
We would love to hear from you all about participating. Last year, over 200 visitors came through the Firehall to see what working with fibre was all about. We had a such a great time and so did the kids and parents who came out to see.
Many men and children learned how to sew on a button, do some hooking, try some wet-felting and pick up a needle!
Come to craft for a couple of hours or all day.
Come and do a demo for everyone to see.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Christine at: email@example.com
