Check out our Market
The Sales and Crafts working group is one of the largest groups within Victoria Grandmothers for Africa. New members are always welcome. We have a chair, a recording secretary, a book keeper and a quartermaster who stores and keeps track of our inventory. Working group meetings are held in the months between general meetings or as necessary.
We have teamed up with the Education group to visit a number of retirement homes for an audio visual presentation followed by a sale of our items. Some members work at home sewing or knitting, some contribute baking for the bake sale at our Christmas social, some participate in the many workshops we organize to make our various sale items. Members volunteer to help staff the many sales events we attend and also help with decorating for some of our major events. We have a very busy November attending various Christmas Craft Sales.
At present we sell knitted comfort dolls, beaded “Little Travellers” pins, a variety of jewelry, handmade fabric cards, insulated fabric wine bags, unique place mats and table runners, cloth napkins, mug rugs, cotton clothesline baskets, trivets and coasters, pot holders and a variety of seasonal Christmas items. Our inventory is constantly changing, with some items being removed and new ones added. We are currently working on a line of “green”, reusable items such as produce bags, bowl covers, sandwich wraps, etc.
