I love DIY projects and crafts. After moving to Shubenacadie and having family involved with the Tinsmith Museum and Gift Shop I thought it would be a nice fit for my crafts and a new hobby.
It has become so much more! What I thought would be a pass time, and a way to showcase my crafts has grown into friendships, a desire to help my community and personal growth.
Learning about the community you live in and the history behind it gives you a sense of belonging. Helping to showcase this gives you a sense of pride.
Becoming involved with the Shubenacadie Tinsmith Museum and Gift Shop first as a crafter, and now as a board member I am contributing to keeping our history alive for future generations.
