For ages 14 and up only!
Please pre-register for workshops by sending e-mail to CullmanFiber@yahoo.com. Pre-registering will help the leaders provide enough supplies, equipment and copies of the handouts.
You will be welcome to the workshops whether or not you’ve pre-registered, if there is space. However if you don’t pre-register, there may not be enough supplies for you and you won’t receive the handout until the following week. So, if you are at least fifty percent sure you’ll be able to attend, pre-register. These workshops are designed for adults and youth ages 14 and up.
