A fun way to learn new skills is with a small project that can be completed quickly. Dishcloths are small, portable for travel/ball games, allow for teaching new skills and make great gifts. Following are some “skills for thrills” options Karla will help you learn. Choose one you like for $25 OR add on additional classes after the first for $15 each. Think of all the new skills you can learn over the summer! The samples will be in the shop very soon!
