Crafts Collection

If you're crafty, you will be interested in the Library's new circulating Crafts Collection kits. 

The collection includes two Brother® sewing machines.  All you need is some fabric and thread to start crafting your own sewing projects. Also in this new collection are two Sizzix Big Shot® die cutting and embossing machines with embossing and die cut accessories.  You can start scrapbooking, making greeting cards, crafting bookmarks, and making many other paper projects. Last but not least, the collection includes a yarn winder/yarn swift set that you can check out to get your yarn wound, organized, and ready to use.

Instructions are included with each item. Whether you are an experienced crafter or just getting started, this collection is for you!

  • These materials may be checked out at the self-check kiosks or at the circulation desk with a Library card.
  • Items must be checked out before using them.
  • If the item you want is checked out, please place a hold or ask a staff member to help you.
  • Please return items to the circulation desk.
