Fort Bend County Libraries’ University Branch Library will present special programs for crafting enthusiasts in October. People of all experience levels – from beginners to advanced – who enjoy craft activities are invited to share tips, get ideas and inspiration, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow crafters.
· Wednesday, October 9 – “Pinterest for Beginners” - 2:00 pm, Computer Lab. Learn all about Pinterest, the virtual pinboard that has taken the social-media population by storm. Pinterest enables people to organize and share items of interest to them that they have found on the Internet. Pinboards can be used to collect ideas for anything from planning weddings or decorating homes to organizing favorite recipes, and much more. Those attending the class should already have a working email address and password. Registration required.
· Tuesday, October 22 – “Fun with Felt” – 7:00 pm, Meeting Room 2. Discover the creative fiber-art craft of needle felting. One of the oldest textiles in the world, felt can be used to create beautiful, personalized décor or greeting cards. Learn how to use special needles as a sculpting tool to manipulate the fibers of the cloth into pieces of art. Those attending the program will learn how use wool, felting needles, fibers, and embellishments to create a decorative pumpkin for the fall season. Registration is required.
Materials for these programs are provided through the generous support of the Friends of the University Branch Library.
