Newport Senior Activity Center recently received, thanks to the gracious donation of Margaret Janis of Newport, a donation of counted cross-stitch art, entitled “The Quilting Party”, part of an “Amish Series”. It took 9 months to complete by this self-taught artist.
Margaret has been cross-stitching since the 70’s, enjoying over 30 years experience in this renowned art form, with 20 completed pieces to date. Margaret also shares her Scrabble skills here at the center and can be found helping others get the most from the game.
Come by and check out all the activities, art, events, and volunteer, too, at your Newport Senior Activity Center, located at 20 S.E. 2nd Street, Newport, or give us a call at 541-265-9617, or check out our website www.newportoregon.gov/sc
