This scarf will be listed on my etsy site for 24 hours. If it is still available Saturday morning it will be included in the trunk show accompanying the Saturday workshop at Phebie’s Needle Art.
Even if you aren’t signed up for the class you can pop on in to view the trunk show and have lunch in charming Claremont!
