How about some "girl time" while learning pastimes of the past?
In our modern society we are losing touch with traditional handcrafts. Women and girls throughout history have used handcrafts to beautify their clothing and their homes.

Our projects during the week will focus on handcrafts depicted in American Girls books as well as traditional handcrafts of the periods in which they lived. We will be creating projects for our Tea Party on Friday as well as clothing and accessories for American Girl dolls.

Participants will learn about embroidery, ribbon embroidery and cross-stictch, piecework and quilting, and many other interesting historical handcrafts. Even if you have prior experience with handcrafts, you9ll enjoy the projects and a chance to make new friends. The week will culminate in a tea party on Friday - complete with china & all!

Girls are invited and encouraged to bring their dolls to class!

Girls and moms may register individually or together. Moms are not required to stay with daughters (or vice versa!)
