Handicraft Group
Started in 2018: several members have expressed interest in Lorraine Haucke’s and Kathy Hutchins’ proposal of a handicraft group.  If you hook rugs, crochet, sew, quilt, knit, needle point, embroider, cross stitch, need to sew on a button or two, shorten something,  or just like the idea, this group wants YOU.  Come share ideas or socialize. For more details, go to the left side-menu, and click: Calendar/Handiwork.

Let Kathy Hutchins know if you are interested in joining members to see a movie or play and also have a quick meal before or after.
