Lessons for November 2018
Hello Everyone!


Today we bring you the incredible Lesson schedule for November.  Notable changes to this month include the triumphant return of CreART with Carolyn - returning from a few months hiatus and back on board with bells on!!

We will also be hosting a second All Day Event with Janine and Mandii this month due to the Saturday booking out so fast. We will be repeating this lesson on a Wednesday as well as the usual Saturday moving forward, and we do encourage you- if you are able to participate during the week, to do so.  Let's give the working Gals a chance to get their craft on too. :)

All of this month's lesson are bound to be a hit - managing to fit them all in will be the trick this month!

Good Luck with that! ;)

Thanks so much for your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you at one (or maybe more) of our lessons really soon! 

Ruth, Mandii and The Paper Flourish Team.
