Scarf Making

Saturday, December 13, 2014 - 12:00pm to 4:30pm
Here’s a great chance to make something for yourself or a friend and do a good turn. You will make two fleece scarves: one to give and one to donate. Instead of tying the fleece, it is braided, for a new and different look. This program is open to all, but please register as we want to make sure we have enough fleece and helpers. The program will run from 12-4:40. Allow about an hour and a half to make two scarves. Children under the age of 8 must attend with a caregiver. This program is sponsored by the Teen Advisory Board and the Friends of the Library.
