No offense to your grandmother, but leave the embroidery needle and handkerchiefs at home. We're taking crafts into the 21st century with stylish infinity scarves and modern necklaces.

We don't have to tell you how popular infinity scarves are these days. Have fun making your own with Holly Willis! Great for beginners! Materials provided, but if you have a favorite material you'd like to use, please bring it. Please register: 720-865-0975 or fclmybranch@denverlibrary.org.
