Monthly Creations

Monthly Creations is a craft group led by GFSC Activity Director Ranea Johnson, along with the help of volunteers. They determine the monthly craft, pick up most of the supplies, and then lead the group on completing the craft. The craft of the month and the date for Monthly Creations can be found in the Events Calendar or in the Silver Express newsletter.

Craft Group

Each Friday, crafters gather in the Grand Forks Senior Center Garden Room from 9 am to Noon to work independently on creating crafts, which will be displayed at the Grand Forks Senior Center and sold to benefit the Center. There is an entire room of craft supplies the crafters may use in making their creations. An especially popular item that often sells out from the Grand Forks Senior Center gift case is embroidered dishtowels. Other popular items are knit and crocheted hats and scarves.
