Have you noticed the fun craft programs we’ve been offering for adults? We usually meet on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. It’s a great chance to meet new people, learn a simple craft and just spend an hour or so doing something creative. Thus far we have made valentines, learned simple crocheting techniques and baked some retro Shrinky Dinks that turned into earrings and fobs. In July we’ll be making duct tape clutches and repeating the Crochet program, then in August we’ll make bookmarks with the popular product washi tape. The best part of the series is that you only need to bring your creativity since we supply the materials and tools. The Friends of the Sunnyvale Library have provided the funds for these fun activities.
If you missed the first programs but are interested in learning how to do some of these old and new crafts check out these books.
