A Handmade Mother’s Day @ Community UCC
May 6 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

This year, make mother’s day extra special by making the mom in your life a handmade gift. Mothers don’t want or need another gift from the mall, it’s just not as special as she is. And spending hundreds of dollars getting all the tools and materials to make a gift is just too costly. And then there’s all the stuff that has to be stored somewhere. Wouldn’t it be great if you could pay one small fee, and get all the materials you need and the use of all the tools necessary to make a beautiful and unique gift? That’s what this event is all about!

Come to a very special workshop and choose from a collection of beautiful gift kits you can make on-site, at your own pace to honor the mom in your life. Drop-in hours available on both Saturday May 6 and Sunday May 7. For more information and to register, please visit:
