Hey, sweetheart, let's make Victorian Valentines!

Hey, sweetheart, let’s make Victorian Valentines!



The staff at Pennypacker Mills in Schwenksville is hosting a Valentine-making session for children from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4th.
The children, who must be five years and older, will create  old-fashioned Valentines using ribbon, red paper, lacy doilies, and Victorian "scrap," a kind of old-style clip art. The finished cards will be suitable for giving to sweethearts, family and friends, though probably not pets.
Instructors will guide children step-by-step through the process of making each Valentine. All materials are provided.
Midway through the workshop, cookies and hot chocolate will be served. The session will take place in the newly-renovated classroom building which has a rest room.
The workshop fee is $5 per person and is by preregistration and prepayment only. For information, contact Pennypacker staff at 610-287-9349.
Pennypacker Mills, home of a former Pennsylvania governor and his family, is owned and operated by Montgomery County. It is located at 5 Haldeman Road, Schwenksville, Pa. 19473.
