Cookie Decorating
Decorated Cookie
TWIGGS will have our annual cookie decorating for all ages. This year, our old friend and master baker Mae Ward will be guiding you through the decorating.  Sit down and decorate ‘til your hearts content!  TWIGGS will also have a special Valentine’s pinwheel make and take as well.  

Twiggs Artists and Teachers
TWIGGS will have guest artists demonstrating some of their class offerings.  Gail Smuda will be showing you Boro, a very traditional art of slow stitching.  Anne McMillan will be demonstrating  her bookmaking skills.  Laura Morrison will have a “Visible Mending” demo and activity. 

Celebrate with a 20% Off sale in the retail shop.
While you are at TWIGGS, browse through the shop!  Adele has added new calligraphy and books and of course, she has her Winnie the Pooh quotes.  Her line of Sweet Pea designs incudes her handmade calligraphy cards, eco-dyed books and fun folded books.  We also have a great selection of antiques, cabinet cards, old catalogues and glassware along with cool glass milk and cream bottles, cordial sets, and newspapers dating back to WWII.  The card and gift section has an unusual selection of eclectic pieces and is well worth the trip…especially if you remember the old CAARDVARK store in Concord!
