And now for some things completely different . . . and a few that you might have seen before.
Fabric and fabrications
If you have ever dreamed of a studio, a sewing room or a craft table of your very own, but lack the space we may have the answer. Several sewing, craft and art groups use library space to follow their muse without cluttering up the living room. On the fabric front: Pulling Threads from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday March 2 and the Threaded Needle from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday March 15 are set up with numerous tables for drafting, piecing and machine work. In Stitches at 7 p.m. Wednesday March 23 concentrates on hand work in a more traditional sewing circle. All these groups are free of charge and open to new members. Drop in and sew along.
Whether you love computers or loathe them, it has become increasingly hard to avoid them. Take the plunge and you too might discover why they seem to be everywhere. We are currently offering two regular groups of classes on Wednesdays and Fridays during the day and evening and weekend offerings may soon be available. Wired Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. every Wednesday are basic programs for beginners helping you master skills or tasks that come up on a regular basis. This month's schedule is as follows: March 2 - Email Basics- participants will go step by step to set up a free e-mail account through Yahoo; March 9 - Evaluating Web Info- Who can you trust? Learn ways to sift the wheat from the chaff; March 16 - What is this file? Computers store different information in different formats. This class will help you figure out why that file won't open and what you can do about it; March 23 - Ebooks! Whether you have an Ebook reader or you're just thinking about taking the plunge we can help you find, download and manage your digital books; and March 30 - Skype Don't Phone! If you have a computer with Internet and a web cam, you can teleconference around the block or across the world. Let us show you how.
