RiverBend Creations Guild
Enjoy, Learn, Laugh and Share with Friends…is the mission statement of our RiverBend Creations Guild.
The RiverBend Creations Guild is located at the Creation Clubhouse and everyone loves it here. It is a beautiful place where we bond with friends, learn, laugh, share and enjoy creating projects together. We work on individual projects or work on the same project as a group. The Creations Clubhouse has everything you need for your project. This includes lockers, ironing boards, comfortable chairs, a weaving loom, ample room to spread out, good lighting, bathrooms, oversized sink, refrigerator and microwave. A variety of large tables are designated for different tasks like quilting, cutting, sewing and painting. You can explore and discover new creative arts to inspire you and hone the skills you already have. In the recent past, the Creations Guild has offered classes on:
- Watercolor and acrylic painting
- Beading and jewelry making
- Garden mosaics
- Greeting Card making
- Glass etching
- Fairy gardens
- Plus many more
The Creations Guild has many fun events besides all of their normal activities. A luncheon at the end of the season showcases ideas for the next year’s projects and some of the finished projects from the year.
One popular event is a day trip to Matlacha to attend a painting class led by a local artist in this quaint little artsy village.
Another well attended event is the Vino Picasso Wine and Paint class. No former painting skills are required as the class is led to paint the same picture and sip some wine. All of the paintings turn out great but no two are exactly the same!
Group activities usually are centered on sewing projects such as piecing a quilt together, sewing gift items such as purses and hand bags together, making fabric coil baskets and more. It is especially gratifying when a project is completed and that project gives back to the community and benefits others. Every year we hold a quilt raffle to raise money to send at risk youth to camp near RiverBend Creations Guild. Many hundreds of dollars have been donated to local charities. The Creations Guild’s largest fundraiser is an annual silent auction of themed gift baskets donated by Guild members.
By participating in our Creations Guild you will, Learn, Laugh and Share with Friends and give back to the community! Our Membership grows every year!
