Crafternoon – Join this Month’s Craft Workshop!

Crafternoons are a chance to access your inner artist once a month at Alden Lane! It is an opportunity to get together and create something amazing and have a bunch of fun doing it. Even better- invite a couple of friends to do it with you! These make and take projects don’t require any special skills, and kids from 12 to 112 can do them (although younger kids could do it with the help of an adult). Pick one project (or more!) and pre-pay with our Alden Lane Cashiers to reserve your space, as the classes fill up fast. (925)447-0280. If we don’t have 8 sign ups by the Wednesday before the Saturday class, the class will be canceled, so register as soon as possible. Let’s have FUN!

Come and have some fun with our Make & Take Projects for Winter. Sign up today! They also make great gifts for the holidays.

felted-santaFelted Santa – December

Sat., December 10th • 1:30 to 3:0 p.m.

WHOO HOO! Ruth is back to teach us another wonderful felt class so we can learn yet another felting technique – this time using felting needles to create a little figurine of the jolly ol’elf, Santa, or you can change the colors and make him a gnome. This is a delightful and fun class with even more delightful results! No sewing is involved. If you can poke a needle into wool (no thread), without poking yourself, you can do this! The cost for this class is $24.00 for materials and instruction. Reserve your space by Wednesday, December 7th. See you there!

Please make your reservation early so we have enough materials for everyone – space is limit Call our Cashiers at Alden Lane (925) 447-0280.
