Make a donation to the Vault
Gallery at the VAULT is pleased to present a show of fine handcraft from the Great Hall Handcrafters from January 3 to the 30th. What a treat.
This is not your grandmother's quilting. View fresh, new works in knitting, crocheting, embroidery, quilting, rug hooking, rug braiding and basket making by your friends and neighbors.
The handcrafters meet each Thursday at the Great Hall where people stop and admire their projects. They help and inspire each other and teach new skills. New people are encouraged to join the group and enjoy the camaraderie.
Among the regulars, and whose work you may see, are Annie Katz, Betsy Foster, Lyn Haas, Priscilla Pretraska, Marita Johnson, Marilee Abbott, Elyse Benoit, Ruth Wadleigh, Kathi Byam, Laura Batchelder, Elaine Day-Starrett, Mimi Stringham, Kaye Peck, Liz Patterson and Liz Clapperton.

Cost is $75 members and $80. non-members. A materials list will be provided at registration. All levels welcome.
