Tree Scout Pledge:
On my honor, I pledge to craft to the best of my ability
to weave and tuck in ends cleanly
to maintain a sunny disposition (unless my cat has eaten my needles again!)
to help out a fellow scout in need
and to follow directions, but bust a groove when the spirit moves me!
*Students receive a 10% discount on materials they purchase for their class from The Knitting Tree, L.A.
