TIE-DYIN' FOR TEENS

Saturday, July 30 at 1:00-3:00PM

You know you were jealous last summer when the little ones were tie-dying their T's. Here's your chance, you lucky teen! Bring your own item to tie-dye. Keep it practical and smallish. A white shirt, pillowcase, or scarf is perfect! Siblings, pets, and king-sized comforters cannot be tie-dyed!

To register for this groovy event.
