    I'd suggest you call the library where you want to attend to see if they want you to register. The library will provide all the basic supplies. We found at Grabill that an hour was just long enough to get started but everyone took their projects home partly done. It was great fun!

    Do we need to register for the workshops?  Do we need to bring anything?
