Of Note!

note

This is a new section that I’m going to try out and see  how it pans out.  I’d like to add different blogs and websites that you find helpful in your fiber pursuit.  If it gets too large, we may have to vote and thin them down but we’ll see how it goes!  I have learned about so many from other people that I never have found by myself.

Starting with:

These are all weaving sites sent by Kathy Dailey (Thank you!):

Spotlighting in our library this month is the wonderful but alas, no longer published magazine, ‘Sew Beautiful’.

From re-purposing family heirlooms to fashioning wedding finery, these pages are filled with truly beautiful sewing. Whether you’re looking for a quick-and-easy gift idea or planning to spend hours shaping a round lace yoke, these issues have you covered.

We have several years  including some of the special editions of the magazine.

 

If you see a book you are interested in, let me know and I will bring it to a meeting for you to check out for 30 days (or longer if it hasn’t been requested).  If I’m coming to town, I’m sure we can arrange a meeting to drop it off!    Every month I will be bringing several books that relate to the topic of the program.  You are welcome to look through the books and check one out if you are interested.

If you have fiber related books/and, or magazines that need a new home, we are always accepting donations!  Same with equipment:  looms,  needles and so on…  Remember we are a non-profit organization and it can be used as a tax deduction.
