Simcoe County Arts & Crafts Association



Part of the mandate of the Simcoe County Arts & Crafts Association has been, and still is, to interest and encourage residents to become involved in arts and crafts. To experience the enjoyment of creating something beautiful and/or useful with your own hands ... sometimes with old materials ...  the proverbial 'silk purse out of a sow's ear'!

Working with in crafts can become a way of life ... an introduction to new friends ... opening a whole new world of activities and adventures. It can lead to supplemental income as well if you get good enough.  You'll never know if you don't try.  Some of us are naturals ...  

We have provided a precis of six of the heritage crafts so you can get an idea of what skills and equipment are needed to help if you are looking for a new interest and we've given you some community resources to explore.

Please take a look at the Quilting, Stitchery, Rug Hooking, Knitting, Weaving, and Spinning sections we've included for you.
