Craft Bar at Museum of Craft & Folk Art in SF
Be your own valentine this year – or make something special for your sweetie! Craft Bar has you covered either way. Make heart pins (full or broken, depending on your outlook) with Roz Chang, and learn the delicate art of finger-knitting with MOCFA’s own Linda Janklow. Drown your sorrows or toast to your love with libations from Trumer Pils. Yarn kindly donated by Be Sweet. The admission of $5 includes materials, tips, and tricks.

Free admission for members of CAFAM. RSVP is suggested to firstname.lastname@example.org
