  1. Hi Kelly, I can’t wait it looks great! The weaving templates are they to be printed out? If they are could we have them earlier as I don’t have a printer at home, and would have to go to the library during the week. Or perhaps they don’t need printing? I think my daughter will be leading me in this craft party!!
