As a young girl, Chef Kim's love of cooking was born as she watched her aunts and grandmother craft huge family meals.

Meals arrive packaged in reusable containers, ready to heat, freeze, or build a fort with, and most are crafted with local and organic ingredients when possible.

Crafters with armloads of books, makeup, and Dawson's Creek fan fiction can sew durable supply tote bags ($25 for two classes) or breezy, chic scrunchy Kathy's bags ($25 for two classes) to lighten their loads. Or, sewers can ditch hands for the precision and speed of motors with a two-session machine-quilting class ($30).
