What: I am thinking we could make one large fairyland playscape as suggested by Yvonne. I would also like to see some volunteers making Christine’s famous mouse in a pumpkin house, that will go well in the silent auction, methinks! If you have other ideas, bring them on! It would be great to make multiple items for silent auction. If anyone wants to donate wool, bring them on! This project is IN ADDITION to the main raffle project Christine is cooking up.

Please bring: Please bring your felting pen, felting needles, foam pad, scissors, needle-and thread, if you have them, plus a scandalous personal story to share!

Donations Accepted: Wool fibers, large piece of velvet for playscape backing, cash for craft supplies, snacks to feed the hungry crafters, all happily accepted!
