And, if you don't know Becky, from the Pearl's Reference Department, you should stop by and meet her. She's the crafts and sewing queen of the place. She even makes doll clothes for crying out loud! It is something to see. There is no idea one can put before her, that she cannot make happen.
If it's artsy, she has a vision. If it's creative, she'll make MAGIC! And, by the by, the lady wastes NOTHING! An unused piece of tissue, well that becomes a beautiful flower!
That's our BECKY!
Granted, she's just getting started as the Simply Crafts - monthly adult program - leader. But, already, June's birdhouse/feeders made from plastic soda pop containers was a huge hit! Simply Crafts meets every third Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. It's free. No reservation is required and all materials are supplied! WOW! What a deal! July's Simply Crafts (Thurs. July 20) will be Rolled Paper Crafts. Dazzling creations made from such simplicity! SIMPLY CRAFTS! SIMPLY AMAZING! You don't want to miss out! We'll see you there!
