CUTIE Club, FREE
Join us to explore the options available with Cutie Packs, 16 Fat eights, mixed and matched to give you a basis to make your own kit. With over 60 patterns, the possibilities are endless. The group is open to anyone who uses cuties, might want to try one, or just wants to see the fun they inspire.

A BOM program will be included in the presentation, but you are not required to participate in that project. If it becomes too tempting as we progress, you can join at any time and we will be glad to help you catch up with the earlier blocks. Either way, you win.
