Needle Arts!

If you knit, crochet, tat, needlepoint, quilt, cross-stitch....anything that involves a needle of any sort and floss, fabric, yarn, etc., and you are looking for a place to work on a project while chatting with like-minded folks, this is the place!

(So far, we have mostly knitters and cross stitchers.)

The group meets on the 4th Tuesday night of the month, from 5 to 7. Come when you can, stay as long as you can. All skills and skill levels are welcome!


Services YOU Can Use!

There is another link to practice tests for Michigan driving tests. Looking to make a big purchase? Use Consumer Reports to see what they think of it. There is a link to MeL (to borrow something from a different library than ours).
