Are you a crafter?  Crocheter?  Quilter?  Or just have a small project you are working on but haven’t been in the mood to finish?  Well, we are starting a little group session at the Rawlings Museum, the first Friday of each month, from 1-4 pm, upstairs where you can bring your project and just sit and finish it while you visit and socialize with others.  If you need help, we can help each other.  We had so much fun this summer with our Summer History of Sewing Exhibit workshops, that we didn’t want the fun to end!  First session is this Friday, January 6th at 1pm at the Museum upstairs in the Grand Hall or Library, depending on size of group we have.  It is free, it will just be a time of fun and relaxation.  It is hosted by the Bent County Art Guild and the Museum.  For further information call
