Our Creative Crafts group is very popular, we try lots of different forms involving fabric cottons, yarns, and lots of other crafts. We've explored patchwork, quilting, scrapbooking, crochet, and even a yarn storm. We are always learning new crafts thanks to our active members. For more info go here
Our WI began in 2008 and we were advised to make a tablecloth to use at meetings and craft shows. Using the skills of a member who was trained in graphic design we came up with a set of pictures to represent our area and our craft group produced it.For more about our tablecloth go here
