Saltair Quilters and Fiber Arts
The group is busy creating beautiful pieces of art at Saltair Centre.
Would you like to participate in a Yap and Yarn adventure?
We meet every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Saltair Community Centre, on South Oyster School Rd., formerly known as Mt. Brenton School.
We call ourselves the Saltair Quilters but we don’t just quilt, we knit, crochet, embroider, stitch and bead. The result of our efforts are always artistic and sometimes even useful. 🙂
Do you feel the need to socialize and craft? Come, drop in, bring a craft and join in and you will find us welcoming to all!
See the following photos of some of the items that are being lovingly created.
If you are interested in joining the group , they quilt together every Tuesday, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Saltair Centre.
