The Community Clinic Craft Club is a group of women interested in baking, knitting, crocheting, or doing other crafts. Men are also invited! To support the Community Clinic, we sell our handmade goods at monthly bake and craft sales at the main clinic. The dates are posted at the showcase in the lower level of the Downtown Clinic.
We welcome new members and we encourage anyone to help out at the sales. We also encourage people to offer new ideas at our meetings. We meet monthly on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. (except July) at the Mel Langer Building, 424 – 1st Avenue North, down the back alley from the main building. We often invite a speaker or resource person to tell us about a new craft. We then bring out our china cups and saucers (as we think of ourselves a very special group) and have coffee, tea and a dainty.
If you decide to join our group, you need to be a member or become a member of the Saskatoon Community Clinic. You will receive 2/3 of the proceeds from the sale of items you make; the club’s 1/3 share will help purchase wheelchairs, furniture, books, toys for play areas and many more worthwhile items for the Clinic. If you can knit, crochet, bake, sew, or make jewellery, please consider joining our group. For further information call Sonja Freiermuth @306-374-6002 or call Ingrid Larson, Member Relations Director, at the Downtown Clinic.
If you want to donate wool, material, or even kitted goods, we have a donation box at the Downtown Clinic at the back door near the reception area. Please leave your name and phone number so we may thank you for your support for the Handicraft Club.
