As much as we try, there are just some days where leaving the house when it’s too cold is a big ask. While you might have had every intention to head down to the Merrimack Valley and go to a number of shops and events, the call of your warm and comfy couch is just too strong. During those days, why not attend a virtual event? Below are some dates that are upcoming and virtual.
