Week of April 29th – May 5th              


Did You Know?

What is Diamond Painting? It is a fun and addictive craft where you take little, resin made diamonds and using a fixative or self-adhesive canvas, you create a painting from the stones. The canvas typically has a printed design that you cover with the diamonds. It is an easy to learn hobby that anyone can enjoy.

Kits are readily available through the links below. There are also sites that allow you to send in your own photos and pictures, then they will create a kit based off it and send it back to you. These kits can come in a range of sizes and options, including planter picks, key chains, bags, hats, and more.

Diamond Dot Club is Friday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00pm. This class is free for members and $5 for nonmembers. We offer kits for you to purchase, or you can bring your own.
