As the Northern Hemisphere tilts away from the sun those of us “above” the equator prepare for the Holiday Season. The Ignacio Community Library can help you make the most of these times with creative ideas, money saving projects and the space and tools to complete the task.
It can be difficult to remember all the possibilities available at your local library but the IDEA LAB is brimming with equipment and coaches.
The sewing machines are set up and ready for you to use. Not only could you sew a gift that will not soon be forgotten, you can also sew festive decorations, such as stockings and pillows, to immerse your home in the holiday spirit. There are donated plans, patterns and materials for you to use or bring your own cloth or patterns.
The Library has a Cricut Machine which can not only help you create beautiful and unique cards, there are also loads of craft items for making gifts for friends and loved ones.
Maybe you would rather make digital Holiday cards. Learn to use Open Me, a free, open source card making program.
Origami is one of the simplest of art mediums and can be one of the most elegant. Bows, stars, Santa and place settings can all be made by folding paper.
And if you shop online this Holiday, please remember you can support the Library by using AmazonSmile and choosing the Friends of the Ignacio Library as your charity.
Start today, do not delay! The Holidays will be here before you know it. Call or stop by the Service Desk to make reservations and, if needed, arrange for coaching.
