Hand- stitch a bright Cardinal for your tree or window with local professional crafter Heidi Boyd.

When finished each bird measures 5″ L, 3.5” H, and 1” W. All levels of experience are welcome!

Children 8+ are welcome but must have an adult chaperone.

There will also be a trunk show from Heidi’s Brunswick studio. You can purchase other kits and projects! These make GREAT gifts! Kits will be available for sale in the Nature Store as well after the event through Holiday 2019!
