Childs-pace Foundation "Crafts Day" at Piecemakers

August 9, 2014 was a special day at Piecemakers when Childs-pace director, John LeVere, brought sixty bright-eyed, bushy tailed children to Piecemakers for a day of crafts activities. Everyone had chosen his/her craft prior to coming and everything was prepared for rock painting, beading, weaving, leather stamping, sewing fabric yoyo headbands and soap carving.

After completing the projects, lunch was served. To end the day, we had a robust sing-along, then the kids collected their treasures and headed back to "school" with their teachers.  What an enjoyable day and a privilege for all of us at Piecemakers to provide an arts and crafts experience for a great group of kids.
