73 people came out yesterday to join us for our first OctoberCraft event. It was a day for fun and families, crafts and treats. Four different craft stations were set up through the Museum, giving people a chance to explore the new exhibits in between their crafts.
|Sue Hess, Marilyn McAllister, Steve Benton, Marcie Rodriguez, Alanna Rodriguez, Michael Field & Stephanie Bedwell volunteered for treats and crafts all day. Thanks guys!|
|Bob Diaz with Dia de los Muertos crafts|
|Michael teaches a new generation the art of sewing|
He and Stephanie helped kids cut and color skull designs (in honor of Dia de los Muertos) and helped them sew their own bags on a sewing machine. Several kids came back to work on more than one- a new generation of designers in the works!
|Photobomb! The photographer gets photographed while a new student shows off her work|
|Making their own bags got kids excited to go trick-or-treating later!|
Coiled Clay and Spooky Lanterns were also big hits. These crafty kids came with creativity to make some great projects!
|#Ramseselfie with some raffle winners!|
OctoberCraft was sponsored by Sears and Antonio Rivera, Realtor. Antonio raffled off $150 in gift certificates to the IVDM gift shop every hour and to lots of excited winners!
