October is Fiber Arts Month
We've expanded Quilt Month to include all Fiber Arts!
Come to the library all month long to see local fiber art pieces including quilting, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, weaving, spinning and felting. Antique/vintage needlework and tools from local collections will also be on display.
Fiber art themed books for all ages will be available for check out. Each check out earns a chance to win one of several prizes.
The Friends of the Cook Public Library are sponsoring a ticket raffle for a chance to win a beautifully embroidered and quilted wall hanging, donated by a local artist.
Spinning Demo: Thursday, October 11, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Fiber Arts Tea: Tuesday, October 30, 5:00 pm
BFF Club Starts October 11
Theme: Book Author/Illustrators
All elementary-aged children are welcome
Snacks are provided
October Illustrator: Lois Ehlert
Do you remember Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom? Eating the Alphabet? Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf? Nuts to You?
Lois Ehlert wrote and illustrated those books. We’ll look at her books, learn how she illustrated them, then create our own illustrations using the same techniques.
The BFF Club meets the second Thursday of the month October - May at 4:00 pm at the library.
Each month will feature a different author/illustrator and a different technique for us to try.
We’re looking forward to working with you soon! Kathy and Kristi
The BFF Club is supported by The Friends of the Cook Public Library
