Saturday Crafters, a monthly craft program run by Bernardsville Public Library, will hold its next meeting on Saturday, May 17, at 3 p.m. Teens or adults are welcome to join others who enjoy doing various handwork techniques. This could be your opportunity to complete an unfinished project, start something new or just get creative ideas, all while spending a pleasant afternoon in the library’s Community Room.
At past meetings, members have practiced rug hooking, needlepoint, jewelry-making, crochet, rug weaving, paper arts, embroidery and knitting, so any portable handwork project would be suitable. If you are a knitter, sewer or crocheter, perhaps you’d like to craft for charity. Over the years, some Saturday Crafters members have made and donated items to local charities, and a few are currently working on new charity projects.
One of the great benefits for this group is the fact that library resources are right at hand. Should you suddenly forget how to do a stitch, a quick walk out to the library bookshelves will put you in touch with loads of how-to books, DVDs, and magazines. In addition, group facilitator Evelyn Fischel will showcase the library’s newest crafting books. Consider joining this creative group, then bring a friend and tell others about it, too!
