The 7th Annual “Evergreen Kissing Balls and Holiday Creations Class” is on the 2016 schedule. To register visit www.WORKSHOPSCT.com.
This popular class gets filled with a fun group of attendees and charges up your holiday spirit early.
All are welcome. You do not need an official invitation, but you must sign up via the workshops site noted above. Once you are signed up, your seat will be confirmed with an advance pre-registration fee required.
You have 3 choices for dates:
CHOICE #1 — Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 – The Big Class: This is the big class with a large group, very festive, includes some holiday cheer and food. A great way to get together with friends and enjoy bonding, crafting time. It can get a little rowdy, so if you don’t like crowds and prefer quiet, here’s Choice No. 2:
CHOICE #2 – Wednesday, December 7th, 2016: Weekday Workshop – The week following the Big Class, if you can not make the prior Saturday, we offer a smaller session during the evening, after work hours. You may arrive anytime after 5 pm. Beverages and food are not included.
CHOICE #3 – Special and Custom Orders: If you can not make our holiday workshops, and need a special order – feel free to contact Cathy Testa. Wreaths, Centerpieces, Swags, and Kissing Balls are available by request. All with fresh mixed evergreens and decor, such as ribbons. See Holidays on this site for a drop-down list of options for custom orders. Personalized one-on-one sessions are also available by request.
