    Escape the dull days of February with the first Craft n Chat of 2018! We'll be making tiled coasters (a set of 4). The sky's the limit with what you can use to make these: photographs, sheet music, maps, dictionary pages, tissue paper, stickers, sharpies. I'll send an email with suggestions for what registered attendees can bring in case you want yours more personal, but I'll have tons of scrapbook paper on hand, too.

    Feel free to bring a snack to pass and a drink to share!
