A Handmade Library Class.


Kirov Ballet School / Roger Wo... Digital ID: 98F1578. New York Public Library
Ahh, school days.

As you might imagine, I am always on the hunt for interesting Library resources both old and new to share with the great wide world of the handmade. And next week I'll be giving a free one-hour class on how you too can use the Library's resources to satisfy your own crafty curiosities.


On Wednesday the 16th, at 2:15pm, please join me at the New York Public Library's Celeste Bartos Education Center at South Court. I will talk about how the Library's books, magazines, and databases can both inform and inspire you in your own handmade work. I'll bring along samples of pattern books and magazines, histories, and wonderful old craft books to share too. There's no need to register--just come on in and join me for this crafty show-and-tell. Here are the details:

Wednesday April 16th, 2:15-3:15pm
(classroom will open at 2:05pm)
First Floor, South Court Classrooms
New York Public Library Fifth Avenue & 42nd Street

One last note: I'll teach this class two more times (at 2:15pm on May 21st, and at 2:15pm on July 16th), so please mark your calendars for one of these dates if you are interested but can't come next week.
