Are you interested in sewing and knitting, printing, traditional crafts and the new DIY (do it yourself), as well as vintage-inspired design, and all things handmade. Then join us at the SALON. We’ll dive in to different types of unique crafts and whet our curiosity a little. The library will provide the colorful papers, fabrics and other embellishments, we may need, as well as great books from our collection you can check out and pursue further. You’ll be inspired by our sessions and tap into the curious crafter in us all.
