Watercolor Club
The Watercolor Club is a group of painters who have been meeting on a regular basis, sharing ideas, techniques and resources.  While their primary purpose is to paint, it is important that the group retain its friendly, positive, encouraging atmosphere.  The group plans occasional one day workshops, and would welcome artists who are willing to teach.  The Watercolor Club meets every Tuesday afternoon at 1:00 pm in the Craft Room.  For information on this Club, please talk to the co-coordinators  Sandy Baceda and Erika Bosters
**The Watercolor Club is a continuation from the Fall 2016 program – Club is full**


Krafters Koffee Klub
This group of crafters is calling all knitters, crocheters, quilters, and crafters. They invite you to meet with them on a weekly basis for a social get-together.  Bring your own work projects to work on, and ideas to share.  The Klub meets every Wednesday in the Craft Room from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, starting January 4, 2017.


Quilters Group
Are you interested in getting together with other quilters one day a week?  You will need to have basic quilting skills as this is not a class.  This is a group that show and share, while having someone to talk to with similar interests.  You do not need a machine every week.  Group members work on individual projects, and sometimes on charity quilts.  The group meets every Wednesday in the Craft Room from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, starting on January 4, 2017.


The Card Crafters
If you can cut along the lines you’re hired!  The group uses parts from used greeting cards which are then recycled onto new cardstock with envelopes, and sold in our “Craft Boutique”.  Please check out our finished products for purchase in the Craft Boutique!  The Card Crafters meet every Thursday in the Craft Room at 9:00 am.  New crafters welcome.
