Sewing and crafts


The library holds sewing programs throughout the year using our collection of more than a half-dozen machines. Try your hand at quilting or make a purse or zippered pouch. Programs are recommended for those with basic sewing machine experience. Most require registration.

Available equipment includes Brother CS6000i sewing machines and a Brother 1034D serger.

The library also frequently offers “Make It Yourself” craft classes featuring a variety of projects. Many of these are also open to teens.
