Use your creative talent to make a difference in the lives of survivors of domestic violence. Join us for crafting, fun, and community for crafters of all levels! At these Nancy's Nest Craft Club sessions, you will join members of our community in making and assembling handmade cards to be sold at events.
No craft experience required! We make it easy for you to be part of our Nancy's Nest Craft Club and give back to your community in a fun way!
What is Nancy's Nest?
Nancy's Nest was created in honor of Nancy Zamrzla, a long-time volunteer who started and ran the Traveling Quilt Raffle for over 10 years. Each year, Nancy would find a donated, handmade quilt and along with the help of other volunteers, would set up booths at various events in the area. During her tenure, while taking donations and selling $2 raffle tickets for each quilt, she raised over $200,000 to help WomenSafe and survivors of domestic violence!
Though Nancy is still involved, WomenSafe has taken the reins on the Traveling Quilt Raffle and turned it into "Nancy's Nest". Raffle tickets will still be sold for a quilt each year, however we are adding the sale of handmade cards. These cards will be designed and created by volunteers and clients of WomenSafe, then sold to the community to support our organization!
The craft club will meet the 2nd Monday of each month!
We will provide some art materials but feel free to bring your own and show of the artist in YOU!
