Library

  1. Bottle Cap Pincushions (Main Library)

    January 23, 2020, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM @ Basement, Makerspace

    People who enjoy sewing, embroidery, or other needlecrafts know that a pincushion can come in very handy. Those who want to take their needlecraft with them when they travel or even have to wait someplace may need to get into as small a container or space as possible. That’s where bottle cap pincushions benefit everyone. Being small and versatile, they travel easily, can fit in small spaces, and may even be attached with double sided tape to a sewing machine to keep them handy when needed. Getting one is easy. Come to the library and make your own. All materials will be supplied, and for more information, contact staff at 325-676-6025.
