Sew a gnome with Sue

Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 2:00pm

Sew a gnome with librarian Sue from 2-6 pm Thursday, November 14. Sewing machines and tools will be provided by the library. Some fabrics will be provided by the library. Matching fabrics are not guaranteed! Let us know if you need fake fur (beard material) by November 9 so that we can have some on hand for you. You may bring your own fabrics and/or scissors if you choose.

The library will provide dried corn as a weighting medium, if you choose to use it.

Need additional time? Librarian Meredith will be leading this project 2-5 pm Friday, November 15.Photo of gnome decoration
