2018 SWAT Family Programs

Hello!  Welcome to the 2018 SWAT Family Programs Registration System! 

This year's selection of programs and demonstrations is designed to provide fun activities for the family members of the SWAT attendees.

We will have a variety of crafting classes and demonstrations on all three days. We will have our annual favorites as well as several brand new classes! Check the attached PDF file below, to see samples for most of the classes. Also, when you come to SWAT, come visit the Family Programs Sign-up tables to see samples in person! Finally, follow our SWAT Family Programs FB page to see more details on each class.

This year, our main room will be available as our "Community Store - to Shop, Sit, and Socialize" for select times only. We will also have tables in the hallway area; bring your favorite unfinished projects to work on or if finished, move them to the Community Store to share or to sell Saturday morning! Come ready to spend time with friends!

We won't have organized trips this year but will have lists of local antique stores and quilt / fabric shops. And of course, you and your friends can take the Silo District Downtown Trolley, venture out to the Waco Mammoth National Monument or Homestead Heritage Traditional Crafts Village, check out the new Titanic exhibit (starts in June) at the Baylor Mayborn Museum Complex, check out the Dr. Pepper Museum, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fall and Museum, of visit the Genealogy Center at the Waco-McClennan County Library and so much more!

Check the event schedule below and register early; classes fill up quickly! All fee-based activities will require payment to the instructor with cash only.
