Spring Finishing Frenzy Starts in 10 Days

FrenzySquareIt’s that time of year again, folks! Our Spring Finishing Frenzy will run from April 15th through midnight on May 27th. The celebration will take place at the shop on Saturday, May 28th at 5:00pm.

As usual, the goal of this event is to encourage you to finish up some of your WIPs, with the moral support of the group and a party & prize at the end to nudge you along.  You can pick whatever projects you want, with the only strict rule being that the projects on your list must be WIPs as of the start of the Frenzy.

Once you’ve decided what you will finish, you can sign up HERE.  We hope you will join us!
