The Community House Craft Group has been known by a few different names, and it is one of the longest-running groups the House has seen. The Craft Group is open to anyone who enjoys crocheting, knitting, scrapbooking or wants to learn how to do it.
Joining a craft group offers many benefits that extend beyond the realm of creative expression. Beyond the joy of crafting, participating fosters a sense of community and belonging. Engaging in shared creative activities provides an opportunity for social interaction, offering a supportive and collaborative environment where individuals can exchange ideas, share skills, and learn from one another.
The camaraderie within a craft group often leads to developing meaningful friendships, reducing feelings of isolation. Moreover, the group dynamic encourages personal growth and skill enhancement, as members can draw inspiration from diverse perspectives and techniques. Crafting in a group setting can also be a therapeutic outlet, promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
Who is welcome?
Anybody! Anybody at all; we don’t care what craft you bring along; whatever you bring, we’ll be happy to see you.
Only a few generations ago, knitting, crocheting or sewing were general household skills. It wasn’t uncommon for families to make their own clothes, and if they tore or ripped, the clothes were mended or the fabric reused for something else.
However, with a society that has become increasingly busy, it seems many of these talents and skills have become lost treasures. But not in the Craft Group. The people who meet up on Monday mornings at the House are all at different skill levels; some are beginners, and some could crochet the world map if you asked them to, but they all have a passion for the trade in common.
The beautiful border is now complete and can be seen the next time you visit the House.
