If you enjoy working with fibers such as knitting, crocheting, weaving, embroidery, etc., we invite you to be a part of the Main Library’s Fiber Arts Club. Meeting on the first and third Wednesdays of every month, from 10:00AM to noon, participants will engage in working on their current projects at the library, while sharing tips and techniques with others to continue building new skills.
Our next session will be run on Wednesday, February 7 at 10:00AM. There’s no need to register, simply bring your materials and meetup with others in the basement for this collaborative workshop. This series is led by Heather Carter, and she has enjoyed her time spent in the world of crocheting and amigurumi. She has also facilitated the creation of a community art display, in which those who attend these events have a chance to show off their works in a featured exhibit.
This past summer, the library hosted an Amigurumi Ocean Build series in which we used this Japanese art of knitting small animals to create an ocean aquarium display. Using items, temporarily donated to the library from these sessions, we were able to create a great aquarium display for the public to view.
In the Fiber Arts Club, we will be doing the same. In the winter and spring, we’ll create a Fiber Arts Garden display to highlight the great projects you’ll be creating over the next several months.
All skill levels are welcome to join us, so be sure to check out our Fiber Arts Club sessions in February, which will run on February 7 and 21 from 10:00AM to noon. For more information, contact Heather Carter at 325-676-6025 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
