some quick tips for hosting your own:

#2: find a co-host to help choose 3-4 pins that you want to make

#3: invite your friends. have them bring an appetizer or dessert to share & $20. to pay for materials

#4: go shopping for materials on wholesales shops on Etsy, JoAnn’s bulk items online, thrift stores or your own craft closets
