Crafting & Painting

Crafting and Painting at the QIA is a great way to share samples and ideas on beading, jewelry making, patterns and various projects. It is not just about the beading/jewelry making or the painting!

The ladies love having a place to do their various crafts and or painting and to exchange projects that they have finished over the summer and ones they are working on right here at the QIA.

A really great feature of this get-together is the fact that the group of people are great at sharing patterns and helping any new person who wants to learn how to do any particular craft or paint. We also have some ladies who enjoy knitting or crocheting.

It doesn't matter if you like beading, projects, painting, crafting, knitting or crocheting - we have plenty of room for newcomers that enjoy sharing their wonderful hobby with others. It's always more fun to come out and be with others, rather than staying at home,  while doing something you love! 

For sure a great time is had by all ...

Mondays and Thursdays
9 am to noon

About Vernine Adkins -

She and her husband Jim retired to Quartzsite in 2000. Her parent's, Dorothy and LaVerne McCord, got her started  - the rest, as they say, is history! Vernine immediately developed a passion for it. A passion that naturally developed into teaching. She has been teaching line dancing now at the QIA for over 11+ years!! Her mother passed away in January of 2006. However, her father - at age 87 - still dances and is an incredible inspiration to us all.

As anyone who is motivated about something will tell you, watching others grow and find their love of line dancing gives Vernine great pleasure.We have a great dancing family here at the Q. Many of them have been dancing together with Vernine for 10 to 13+ years!!

The laughing, music, dancing and singing together keeps the entire class young and motivated.
