Create Homemade Crafts at Christ Church's Community Studio

Our friends Amy and Cara lead the Community Craft Studio at Christ Church, whose members and guests meet regularly to try out new crafts. This month's project made tax season a lot prettier!

Our friends Amy and Cara lead the Community Craft Studio at , whose members and guests meet regularly to try out new and interesting crafts.

It's a place where folks can commune, relax and work on their craft projects together. They frequently hold guided projects too, and sometimes charge a nominal fee to cover any supplied materials. Other times, folks bring all their own materials while Cara and Amy provide the how-to.

Over the past several months, the group has made soap, terrariums, folded paper boxes (beautiful for gifts!), paper stars, and homemade bows for the holidays.

On February 18, the Craft Studio created these beautiful fabric-covered expanding file folders—perfect for the coming tax season!

Starting next week, their Mondays in March stitching group is starting a program titled Shashiko Style. Sashiko is a Japanese embroidery technique that creates complex-looking geometric patterns or medallions motifs. During this three-week, guided "Stitch-A-Long," they will embroider a fabric piece large enough to make a tea towel or that can be used to adorn another project.

You can learn more about the Community Craft Studio from the church web page at http://www.maplewooducc.org/open_studio.html.
