Family Friendly Valentine’s Making Party @ The Shop in Homewood

February 11, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Join with Pittsburgher’s from all across the city for a FREE morning of crafting fun to make Valentine’s Day cards to welcome refugees to Pittsburgh. This event was put together by Sloane Davidson who has recently started working for a refugee resettlement organization and was inspired to create this event by an organization in NYC, Army of Lovers to create a similar event in Pittsburgh. You can read Sloane’s blog post about this event here.

Help make this event a success. Our goal is to make 250 cards to give out to children in Pittsburgh.

  1. Attend. The event space is brand new! You’ll love it. Plus meet new neighbors and see friends. All ages are welcome and we’ll have activities for different age groups. http://bit.ly/pghkids2017
