2022 CELEBRATES OUR 45TH YEAR!!!

Coral Springs Craft Guild began in 1977 as a way to promote crafts and serve our community in Coral Springs. Since then, the Guild has become a leading organizational member of the cultural community.  Since its enthusiastic beginning, the Craft Guild has had many accomplished members on its Board of Directors. They have all helped guide the group to its present reputation as a quality organization. The Guild is a not for profit organization comprised of talented crafters and anyone interested in learning crafting!

The purpose of the Craft Guild as stated by our founders is to improve the quality of hand-crafted items sold in the area, stimulate creativity in design and use of materials, provide an outlet for the exhibition and sale of members' work, interact with our community through scholarships and many other community service projects, and enhance fellowship within the crafting community.

Since 1984, the Guild has awarded over $65,000 in scholarships to artistic high school seniors who are pursuing further education. The scholarship program is open to seniors from Coral Springs high schools, seniors who live in Coral Springs, and children of our members who are seniors at other high schools. In 2021, we awarded three scholarships, and will do so again this year!!

Our major events each year are a Spring function and our Holiday Show which features beautiful, top quality hand-crafted items. Due to our fine reputation for quality crafts, our show is very well attended.

The Guild holds a general meeting on the third Wednesday of each month (except December) at 7:00 pm. The meetings are open to adults interested in crafting and feature make-and-take home projects or a demonstration by an accomplished artisan. Check out the meetings page for this month's exciting program! Click on Contact Us and just send us an email if you would like for more information, or just come to a meeting!

A very important part of our Guild is our Community Service. Over the years, along with our scholarship program, our community service projects have included making blankets for newborns and for nursing home residents, creating thank you cards for our military servicemen and women, collecting school supplies for children, making hygiene kits for the homeless, teaching art/craft projects to children and adults, knitting and crocheting red infant hats for the American Heart Association, donating tree seedlings to Coral Springs after hurricane Wilma, providing Ronald McDonald house with art supplies, pop-tops, and toys and games, donating baskets of handmade items for raffles at cancer fund raising events, collecting pounds and pounds of canned food for local feeding programs, doing art projects at SOS Children's Village,creating comfort bears for first responders to distribute to children, making portacath pillows for cancer patients, and MUCH more!

Here's a picture of our January 2021 Coat Drive for the Homeless. We collected coats, socks, and fruit and filled all these bags!!!
