Springville Road Library's Holiday Craft Sale, December 7
Support your local crafters and the Springville Road Library!
So, it’s a month before Christmas and you still haven’t got your holiday shopping done? Don’t despair!
On Saturday, December 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., you can visit the Springville Road Library and shop our Holiday Craft Sale. We’ll have items for adults, teens, and children; for decorating, wearing, and practical use. Most of the items are made by hand (we’ll have some Trash and Treasure items that have been donated for the library sale table), and the sale supports the library craft and quilting programs. You can also meet some of the Coffee, Conversation & Craft participants who will be delighted to tell you about their creations. If you've ever wished you could sit in on an old-fashioned sewing bee, you’ll enjoy meeting these folks. There will be free demonstrations of crocheting, knitting, hand-quilting, loom knitting, tatting, and other crafts. If you see something you like and want to know how it was made, just ask! Come have a free cup of coffee or tea, visit with some of your neighbors, and learn from these experienced crafters. Items are priced to sell, with many bargains available.
On Sunday, December 7, visit the library from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. for our Holiday Open House. It’s our way of wishing our patrons a wonderful holiday season and letting them know how much we appreciate them. Refreshments will be served.
