Please use this to register and pay for the mantle workshop August 4-5, 2017, in Gettysburg, PA.

The weekend will kick off with an informal get-together on Friday evening (8/4/2017), location TBA, then we will meet at the workshop venue on Saturday morning at 9 am.  If you need to be flexible with your time, don't worry: we can accommodate that.

You can either pay using PayPal or print out the registration and send it in with a check. Direct credit card payments will be processed by paypal (the link is under the paypal sign-in field), I can also accept credit cards in person at the workshop.

The cost of the workshop includes some snacks for the weekend and lunch on Saturday, but other than water and coffee, you will need to bring your own drinks.

You need a sewing machine for this workshop.

Please note that this workshop does NOT include materials, because the options are just too varied.
It does include a pattern to copy as well as instruction.  Kay will bring a limited selection of fabrics for you to purchase at the workshopo.  We are also considering a trip to Needle and Thread late Saturday morning.
If you want to discuss material options, it is best to use our FB group ObK Millinery Workshops on Facebook .

Please note: if you have taken this class before with Kay Gnagey, pleae contact her directly for a reduced rate!!!
