Handicraft club Metuljček (Butterfly) was founded in October 2000 at the initiative of Mrs. Zofija Lesjak. Four crafty ladies attended the first meeting, 20 years ago. Since then, a large number of members have exchanged in our circle. There were seventeen of us at most; currently there are nine of us. We meet on Thursdays from 5 pm to 8 pm in the room of Culture and Art Association Rače. Once a year, usually in June, we prepare an exhibition in the foyer of the cinema in Castle Rače, presenting all our products created in the current year. Every year we visit over 30 exhibitions of other handicraft circles in the nearer and wider surroundings, and every other year the exhibitions in Velenje and Lepoglava. At the end of our productive year, we organize a final trip as a reward for our year-round creative work.
We would like to have young people in our ranks who would preserve our cultural heritage and pass it on to our descendants. If you are creative and sociable, join us.
