Burrrrrrr its cold outside!  This Saturday and Sunday at the Maker Space, beat the chill with the coziest workshop in town, where we learn how to hand sew and make our very own stuffed animals or small pillows.  We will learn how to use needle and thread to sew on buttons and make stitches too create a funny faced Stuffie or a cool little pillow. 

We have two workshops each day, the first from 1:30-3:00 and the second from 3:30-5:00.  Register on the day of the event at the NYSCI admissions area.

Hope to see you there.  Stay warm!
