Crafter of the Month!
The Pine’eer Craft Club of Ocean Pines selects one of its members each month to be highlighted for their special crafting talents. Carol Quinto has recently been selected to represent the club in this capacity.
Carol acknowledges she has always had an interest in arts and crafts but was unable to passionately follow her crafting skills until she retired to Ocean Pines in 2004. She is a self-taught sewer who began making hand-sewn items to sell at the club’s Artisan & Gift Shop located across from the Ocean Pines Community Center. She discovered machine embroidery several years ago and enjoys creating custom embroidery pieces. She has also developed a process for making glass and fabric decoupage plates. Although they are time-consuming, she is thrilled with how they turn out.
Carol is also a very busy member of the Pine’eer Craft Club. She currently holds the position of Shop Manager and is responsible for the management of the Artisan & Craft Shop. Over the past years she has held many responsible positions within the club and is co-chair of the Holiday Craft Fair, which the club will sponsor in November.
To see the items Carol has created and those of other crafters in the group, visit the Artisan & Gift Shop opposite the Ocean Pines Community Center in White Horse Park.
