These can range from high tech inventing to quilting groups … and guess what folks? BPL may not have a makerbot, but we have been doing this for years. We hope you will take advantage of some of these great opportunities to share creativity in the coming months: Pulling Threads will meet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 5 and 19 to work on personal projects in a friendly atmosphere.
