Just in time for Mother’s Day, patrons of the West Chicago Public Library District learned a new craft technique last Saturday called “Needle Felting.” Natasha Lehrer of Ester’s Place Fiber Arts Studio in Big Rock, Illinois, patiently led the group through the process using a rainbow of colored sheep’s wool. Among the beautiful creations that resulted were flowers and birds just perfect for springtime gift giving.
“Programs like these have been extremely popular with our patrons,” says Administrative Librarian Melody E. Coleman. In addition to crafts like needle felting and knitting, patrons this spring have been treated to drawing and cooking classes, eco-friendly landscaping and home design, as well as photo organization. More arts and crafts programs are in the works for fall.
