About the Program Leader:

Sharon Thistlethwaite“My first craft that I remember doing was making salt dough beads with food coloring as a young teen.  I was bored so I looked around the house to see what I could find to do.  My grandmother made picture frames with sawdust and homemade glue. Then she would stick pieces of old jewelry in it.  Everyone remembers her work. Very different and well loved.  She would make sock monkeys which I treasured.  My favorite of hers what a big stuffed dog she made for me out of an old black fake fur coat. That was my very favorite Christmas gift.

From there I took various classes with a friend. We made crafts once a week: soapstone carving, flower arranging, pottery, dollies from pantyhose - we were always finding a class to take!

When I had my daughter, I took a break for several years. Eventually I began to craft on my own, especially when I retired in Oct 2018. I began experimenting with various crafts.  Had many failures as I wanted to do my own spin on crafting. An example is paint pouring. I did what I thought was a beautiful abstract.  It wasn't quite dry, so I popped it in the oven for a bit. Well it bubbled up and my beautiful colors were gone.  I flattened it out.  Poured clear resin on it and made a clock.”
