Pot Holder Class Sunday, 15Feb

Join us to make creative pot holders

Sunday, February 15

1pm to 3pm

Library Community Room

Pre-registration requested so we have enough supplies on hand

$5.00 per person just to cover supplies

Supplies participants need to bring:  cotton fabric to your choosing, sewing machine

We will provide: cotton batting, scissors, thread, fabric markers, pins

Call the library or Pam Dolezal to register for the class and / or ask questions at 402-720-3115

The pot holders are so handy because the pot holder fits around the bowl and the bowl sort of sits inside the pot holder.  When microwaving something and the bowl gets hot, this handy pot holder decreases the chance of getting burned when taking the item out of the microwave.  Mix and match fabric, be creative,

The Christmas tree display at the library was very festive again this year.  The Friends of the Library group asked individuals to decorate a tree with one central theme.  The trees were so pretty and colorful.  We would like to thank the following people for bring a tree and helping out the library.  Patrons voted …and the Winner is The Santa Tree by Amanda Vyhlidal.  She wins a certificate and our appreciation.

We created this Snowman from some of our donated books.  He is a little over 5 feet tall.

And the tree is created by folding pages of a book.  Fun, fun
