Fee: $25
includes: brunch, pizza dinner, snacks, dessert, door prizes, raffles, make-n-takes, demos, and a great time!

Pine cone Press Book CLub


"Be Mine"

Book of the Month Club is designed to help educate you to new ideas, techniques and styles through the use of our technique books, specially designed kits and supporting documents. The best part of the Book Club is meeting new friends who share the same enjoyment you have in crafting.

The way it works is simple. Like traditional Bookclubs, our club will have a new Pinecone Press book each month and two kits to take home. After working with your book and kits at home, we meet together the following month to discuss your views and opinions of the book and kits. The difference with the Pinecone Press Bookclub is that along with the technique books and kits, you will receive a study document that is created to go with the selected book each month.

When we meet each month, we gather together to discuss the book and bring the projects that you have created with your kits. These monthly meetings are a time when members share and learn from each other. Month after month you as the group continues to meet and grows, you will become more comfortable and confident with your crafting abilities.

Our Next meeting is scheduled for
Monday, January 21st at 7pm to 9pm.
The Cost is $15
Class Fee covers your idea book, book information and demos, monthly membership fees, and a great groups of gals.
