Joan Donar and Monica Johnson are helping our Craft Fair shoppers at this November 2019 fair.  All items for sale are made by Encore members. We have items that have been knitted, crochet, sewed, and other items our creative members have made.

Julie Seeley, Melanie Parker, Pat Korver, and Judy Brooks have made and are donating items to Hospice of the Valley.  Items include fingerless gloves, lap quilts, slippers, dementia blanket, lap quilts, and rice bags.  All made and donated by the Encore Club

Dementia Blankets presented to Diane Walton for Hospice of the Valley.  These were made by Encore members Peggy Fagyal, , Christy Grimstad and Cheryl Zimmerman

Our Encore members Arlene Claytor,Cheryl Zimmerman,Renee Edinger, and Lucille Hager make fabulous caps to donate for cancer patients and for anyone who may need one and there is no cost for these.  We have a supply at the Club. Please see Melanie or Lucille if you have someone who needs one.


This blanket was made by Rosie Blascyk. All the yarn was donated.  We take any sized ball of yarn to create our projects. Any small amounts of yarn are balled up and used.  That is where the phrase Bunny Balls are from

Our Club Members recycle greeting cards (Christmas and All Occasion) that have been donated. We take the fronts from used cards and create new cards.  We also get cards donated from Bob’s V &S Variety.  The cards are then delivered by Encore members to the Veteran’s Home to have the Veterans send to family, friends, etc.

We were coloring bags that will be used for a hat and bear for the pre-school students of 5 Dysart Elementary schools later this year.
