We are here to rescue you all from yourselves this year with our Christmas Club! We will meet on the 25th of each month (we thought that was appropriate and means it is not on the same day of the week each month) for an informal evening of Christmas / Holiday projects. Bring in what you want to work on - we are here to keep you on track.

It will be a lovely way to get together and keep the Christmas spirit alive all year through. Some demos will be set up, too. 

So let's get started! This is a FREE event but we do just ask that you call to sign up so we can accommodate everybody (416-203-0433).
