Copyright laws normally require each participant to own their own copy of the Calendar. However, Lucy has received special one time permission from the author Katja Marek allowing her to supply the templates and colouring page for this workshop only. If you would like your own copy of the calendar she still has some in stock and will be happy to ship to Winnipeg. https://www.katjasquiltshoppe.com/
