A hands-on workshop “Learn to Knit & Crochet” is offered monthly at Velma Paris Community Center. Learn the basics of knitting or crochet – and check out library books with knit and crochet patterns to inspire you. Register at 862-1630.
The Antique Pattern Library offers a variety of craft pattern books and pamphlets as free downloadable PDF files. I found patterns from the 1920s, the decade in which our Big Read 2013 book “The Great Gatsby” is set. You can make your own clothing and accessories to attend the Big Read events in style.
