Sue’s Holiday Workshop 2016


Sign ups are now open for the 8th annual Sue’s Holiday Workshop…

The workshop will be held Saturday, November 12th from 10 to 3.

It’s a great jump start into the Holiday Season. And… a good way to spend quality time with friends laughing and creating.

We will be making cards, tags, a Winter Window, wood slice ornament, Christmas Tree in a bottle necklace, gift bag and a more.

The price of the workshop is only $45 for the day and includes a hot lunch, yummy desert and every one wins a door-prize.

The workshop will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Washington, IL in my church’s large Family Life Center. Great lighting and plenty of space.

It’s going to be fun.
