Sherman County Artist Series – Sherman County Crafting Ladies
Moro, OR - On any given day you can find a group of very talented ladies gathering in Sherman County to visit, support and create together some the most beautiful and crafty works of art you will find in Rural America. These country ladies not only create for themselves they also create for charity. This month they have a display on the lobby wall of the Sherman County Historical Museum and they are October’s featured artists.
It started years ago, these ladies coming together, and over time they have moved their locations around the county. These days the basement of the Moro Presbyterian Church is a weekly hot spot for being crafty and on the 3rd Thursday of the month you can find them at the museum. Besides the oodles of wonderful gifts for friends and families these ladies have blessed babies to the elderly with hundreds of items being donated to those in need from our local schools to as far away as Haiti. They have made blankets, diapers, lap quilts, walker-baskets as well as notecards. Did I mention most of them are artists, painters and photographers too?
Please stop by and see the handy work of Penny Eakin, Joan Jaeger, Sheila Weber, Dawn Lohrey, Vicki Frey, Pat Green, Donna Schuh, Deanna Padget, Nancy Drinkard, Carol MacKenzie, and Donna Birtwistle being displayed on the lobby wall for the month of October at the Sherman County Historical Museum!
The Sherman County Historical Museum is located at 200 Dewey Street in Moro, Oregon and open daily 10am-5pm May through October. For more information call 541.565.3232 or visit our Facebook page www.facebook.com/shermancountymuseum and website: www.shermanmuseum.org
