Apokoronas Craft Guild
About the Apokoronas Craft Guild:

The Guild has been running for around ten years.  It was set up by a group of women wishing to share and improve their craft skills with one another.

During this time we have organised numerous workshops and skill sharing sessions in sewing, knitting, felting, crochet, lacemaking, pattern making, lino cutting and much more.  We also organise day trips to visit craftspeople around the island.
We’ve held regular craft markets and events and have raised thousands of euros for local charities and schools.

In 2018 we made over 300 poppies and raised over €650 in sales for the Royal British Legion.  

In 2017 eight members made an eight-piece wall hanging based on the Cretan landscape which can be seen in Dourakis Winery, Alikampos, and is now joined by this new hanging on the theme of wine.
