10/14/2014 - Sherman County Crafting Ladies

On any given day you can find a group of very talented ladies gathering in Sherman County to visit, support and create together some the most beautiful and crafty works of art you will find in Rural America.  These country ladies not only create for themselves they also create for charity.  This month they have a display on the lobby wall of the Sherman County Historical Museum and they are October’s featured artists.  

It started years ago, these ladies coming together, and over time they have moved their locations around the county.  These days the basement of the Moro Presbyterian Church is a weekly hot spot for being crafty and on the 3rd Thursday of the month you can find them at the museum.  Besides the oodles of wonderful gifts for friends and families these ladies have blessed babies to the elderly with hundreds of items being donated to those in need from our local schools to as far away as Haiti.  They have made blankets, diapers, lap quilts, walker-baskets as well as notecards.  Did I mention most of them are artists, painters and photographers too?
