Laughter abounded as 10 women made “Rope Coil Planters” with Adult Services Specialist Kim Brubaker at May’s Pinterest Craft of the Month on May 12.
They started with long thick coils of rope, and wound their choice of yarn around the rope to decorate it. Then the yarn-covered rope was cut and wound around old tin cans to make special containers. The containers can be used as planters, pencil holders, or anything else they desired!
It was a glorious sunny day for pets and owners alike at Milton-Union Public Library’s Pet Parade on May 2. Six dogs participated in the parade, with several onlookers both human and canine. One of those onlookers was special guest and local author Becky Corwin-Adams. Corwin-Adams had on display several of her books, ranging from animal tales to stories of growing up in the country and living as an Air Force wife.
The Milton-Union Public Library display case is bursting at the seams with craftsmanship! The Crafty Listeners, an audiobook and crafting group, is sharing some of their handiwork with the patrons.
See crochet, knitting, embroidery, lacework and handstitched felt in a wide variety of stitches and uses. There are stuffed animals, doll clothes, baby booties, prayer shawls, blankets and scarves. Woven cloth and handmade jewelry are also on display. The range is astounding.
