    - The warm weather is finally here! We’re back every Third Thursday of the month with some of your favorite #craftforacause activities (along with some exciting new ones). Volunteers will craft hats and tutus for children to wear during our performances in children's hospitals and care facilities. Join us on the Monroe Street Market Arts Walk for open local vendors, live music, and activities for the whole family. Confirm your seats now for our event that’s already selling out fast.

    Second Saturday Crafting:

Allow yourselves to unwind and create hats, tutus, and other kid-friendly giveaways for children to wear during our performances in children's hospitals and care facilities. Everything you create will be used to help children escape into the world of "make believe."

    Fun Fridays (by appointment):
    - Have a small group of volunteers looking to make a meaningful impact? Our FridayFunday event might be the best fit for you! Join us at our office to create costumes and props for children to use during our interactive performances in hospitals.

Decorate Costumes for Children in Hospitals | Third Thursday Event!

Join us at our Monroe Street Market Arts Walk office to help us decorate costumes for our performances! No sewing skills required. Just bring your imagination, we'll provide the rest. You will be helping us make hats and tutus! Only Make Believe creates and performs interactive theatre in children's hospitals and care facilities. The costumes you will decorate are for the children who participate in our performances. Costumes are the first step in creating a world in the child's imagination, seemingly worlds away from their hospital room. This month's Third Thursday event on the Arts Walk will be DIY themed! Artist studios will be open with DIY activities for attendees to participate in, including a denim bar station, sewing tips, and a "Library on the Go Go" truck. So come volunteer with Only Make Believe and enjoy the food, live music, and DIY night while you're here. We are always in need of ribbons, bubbles, and fabric remnants. Feel free to bring some with you if you have any on hand that you are interested in donating! *Youth under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times
