The Snells Beach Craft Group held a successful exhibition at the Mahurangi Church on November 4.
The exhibition included quilts, knitted items, aprons, bags, beaded angels, jewellery, felt Christmas gnomes, decorated china cups and saucers, and paintings.
Group members are also preparing for the Matakana School Christmas Fair on December 1 (4-8pm) and the Snells Beach School Christmas Fair on December 8 (4-8pm).
The group meets every second Tuesday of the month in the Snells Beach Community Church rooms, opposite the Mahurangi East Fire Station, from 1-3pm. New members are always welcome.
A spokesperson says no “Picasso skills” required, just a desire to be creative and have fun for a couple of hours over a cuppa.
