You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects.

I was curious to see how he would handle billiard instruction with a younger person. Confidence building is important when teaching kids and George did a great job of helping our daughter understand and strategically play the game in a way that was neither patronizing nor demoralizing. He led by example; he was patient, kind, engaged and was having fun. This set the tone for a great experience for our daughter and the whole family.
