We love our young scrappers!  Children are welcome to attend our events, however we do ask that those under 18 be accompanied by an adult and must purchase a crop or mega make & take ticket for the event.

 

What should I wear?

Controlling the temperature in a large hall can sometimes be difficult.  We do suggest that you bring a sweater or sweatshirt to make your stay more comfortable.
