Get crafty with two groups that meet at the library once a month: the Knit and Crochet Club at the West Toledo Branch (1st Monday, 1:15pm) and Open Crafting with Fiberworks Orphans at the Heatherdowns branch (3rd Saturday, 10am-5pm). To give back to the community, the Knit and Crochet Club focuses on making beanies and blankets for neo-natal and oncology units. Practice your craft while doing a good deed. With Open Crafting, you’ll receive instruction from Sandra Scharlow and Fiberworks Orphans on needlework projects including lacemaking, crocheting, and knitting.
