Traditional Christmas Craft Workshop and Fika Print

Every year, SCH members get together to make candy-filled Christmas tree decorations called julgranskarameller.  Some will hang on the Christmas tree at our Lucia celebration, and later the jultomte will give the rest out to all the children.  This year, we will include other traditional Christmas crafts to decorate with as well for our venue.  Bring the supplies for a craft you would like to share with others.

This year's workshop will be on Sunday, November ??, 2019 at the home of Marie Teahen, 23114 San Salvador Pl (Katy), from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM (or come and go whenever!).

Please bring a dessert to share for our Swedish Coffee Table.  Optionally, bring craft material to teach others to do a Swedish Christmas craft or to learn how to do it together with others.  A pair of good scissors is also recommended!  RSVP to Marie at 978-239-4843 (call or text) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
