Woodcarvers meet on Tuesday mornings in Craft Room 1. Talents range from beginners still carving soap, to prominent artists whose work is shown in galleries – and all of them are willing to share their knowledge and spend time visiting with interested individuals.

If quilting is your game, Wednesdays are your day! From about 9am until noon quilting class is held in craft roof 1. These people (yes, men and women) are active, fun, community-oriented, and fun to be around. This class is welcome to all and includes beginners to those very skilled.
