No registration is required and walk-ins are encouraged. Packed lunches are welcome and encouraged. All you need is yourself and your newest sewing project; we hope to see you there!
Cardmaking: Beautiful Backgrounds
The warm weather is definitely warm and is definitely here to stay for a while! For some of us, that means vacations (or staycations)! Why not send your loved ones a homemade card while they—or you—are out on your adventures?
Stop in August 18th at 5:00pm for some crafting! Class fee is $7/person, but all supplies are provided. Please note that your finished result may not match exactly with the examples provided by Anna Geis! Please stop in or call to register today!
Online Book Club: Killers Of The Flower Moon
Are you a true crime fan? A history fan? Both? Then don’t miss the Online Book Club this month! August’s kits will include Killers of the Flower Moon, which combines history and murder most foul all in one (nonfiction) book!
To prepare for the Netflix docudrama over the same book, pick up your book kit (yours to take home and keep) which includes the book, background information, and links to a talk by the author himself over the Osage Murders—a dark chapter in Southwest history.
An optional online discussion will be held August 23rd at 5:30pm for anyone interested. But don’t delay—kits are limited!
