Drop-in Baby Lapsit @ McAuliffe

Tuesdays 10:00-10:30am

This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers runs about 20 minutes and introduces the pleasures of the library to your baby or toddler.

Introduction to Machine Sewing

For adults. Teens welcome space permitting.

Always wanted to learn how to use a sewing machine? Now’s your chance! Join us for an introduction to the machine, threading and creating an even seam. Then we’ll construct a basic tote bag out of donated fabrics or your own materials (ask for a materials list at registration). You’ll have the chance to add options to your bag that expand your machine sewing skills.

Preregistration required as machines are limited. Call 508-532-5570, press 4.
