The Handcrafts Committee is the support group for UJAMAA GRANDMAS Handcrafters; organizing workshops and demos, providing kits and ideas for products. Product Custodians collect and store items until the sale and organize pricing committees, display and clean up after the sale. Materials Custodians (Yarn and Fabric) provide raw materials and kits for products destined to be in the sale. If you take raw materials or kits and find you are unable to complete products for the sale, no worries but please do return them so another member can use it to support the sale.
Make what YOU like. Make what you like to make. Like what you make.
The Handcrafts Committee supports and manages the production and sale of products crafted by UJAMAA GRANDMAS Members while fostering a supportive community amongst the contributing handcrafters.
