Community Notes

When staring down the dragon known as climate change, what are some small ways to fight back? Learn to stitch, mend, and create reusable items to help save the planet! Arm yourself with some new skills as part of Earth Day outreach by crafting in the library.

We will provide lots of take-home resources on the topics of sustainability, zero/low waste, and creative projects to try at home and in your libraries. Techniques for mending, stitching, and reusing clothes and fabric scraps will be covered, and materials will be provided for all to make something.

**If you have an item of clothing that could use some creative mending for you to wear again (jeans with holes, a favorite dress with a stain, torn shorts, etc), please bring it to the workshop!**
