Very safe area,
1 block from Hwy. 44 and Jamison Ave.
Thanks so much for the event last night. The girls really had a blast and it was wonderful that they got to use sewing machines. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they picked that up. You were absolutely fantastic with the girls and I look forward to doing another sewing badge with you again.
Thanks for your patience, kindness and understanding.
