We're excited to be putting together a Burton Ward Super Saturday for all of you!!!
This is a day where we will get together, make some projects, enjoy a nice luncheon together, fellowship one another, and have fun in the process. If you don't want to do any or all of these projects here, bring your own along and join us anyway! We'll have a table set up just for you.

The big idea behind each of our projects is that they are 1.) Affordable 2.) Very simple, and 3.) Make great, inexpensive gifts. The Holiday season will be here before you know it and we want to show you some nice projects that we think everyone will love and afford.

Sign-up lists have started and will continue until Sunday, August 8th.

Here is the project list:

Beaded Earrings & Square Pendant
Feel free to bring your own beads if you have a specific color in mind that you want to use. All other supplies and materials will be provided.

For the Square Pendant below, you will need to provide your own chain - available at JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby.

Bread 101
French Loaves - Cinnamon Rolls - Artisan Bread
Taking the fear out of bread-making! These recipes are EASY this class is designed to show you how simple it is to make your own breads.

Crochet Scarf
Bring your own yarn & hook or we'll provide for $3.00
For beginning to moderate skill level. These make great gifts and they're mess-free! If you've always wanted to learn how to make your own warm, snuggly scarf, then this class is for you.

Fun With Jars
Glass Etching - Gift Ideas - Take-Home Treat
Who knew jars could be so much fun?! We're going to show you how to use them in various ways that you'll definitely love!

Picture Frame Dry Erase Board
*Bring your own frame*
$2.00 for other supplies
Keep your busy family organized with one of these beauties! We're going to have some fun with spray paint, fabric, and see various examples of what you can do with a simple frame.

Cafe Apron
*Bring Your Own Folded Napkin, pressed*
$2.00 for other supplies

Take a simple folded napkin, put a waistband on it, and transform it into a beautiful kitchen apron! You won't feel guilty getting this one dirty - use it, abuse it, and look cute while you cook!

**This is also a great opportunity for any beginners out there to learn simple sewing. This project is very, very easy.**
Also Available:

If you don't want to do any or all of these projects here, bring your own along and join us anyway! We'll have a table set up just for you.

One quilt to give away, one quilt to raffle to you! Everybody who comes will have a chance to win one of these quilts, so make sure to join us! Also be sure to spread the word to all of the sisters you visit teach - some would probably love a chance to attend but they need to sign up for classes they want to participate in.

As of now, we don't know if babysitting will be offered but we're definitely trying to secure some volunteers to help out with this. In the event your kids need to come, you will need to bring a sack lunch for them.
