Have you ever been interested in exploring the crafts of history?  Or modern crafts?  We have strived to learn about these crafts as well as to teach them.  From weaving, pottery, knitting, and crochet, to leather work and metal smithing.  We have a talented group of artists who love to work in these areas and share their knowledge with others.  If you are interested, please join us at one of our meetings.  We meet twice a month in Mascoutah, Illinois.  See details below, and please come visit!

Upcoming meetings:

June 13th: We will be learning about fabric dying.  If you have not already told Paula what you will be dying, feel free to come watch and see what happens when we experiment with fiber and dyes.

June 27th: This will be a business meeting, but it’s a great time to come see what we are up to during the year.   Feel free to bring your own project to work on and chat with other artists.

July 25th (July 11th meeting has been moved):   This will be a business meeting.  We are very busy this month, so we will have a lot to discuss regarding our outside events.
