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.

The library also frequently offers “Make It Yourself” craft classes featuring a variety of projects.
