Tisdale Library starting crafting social

TISDALE — The Tisdale Community Library has started a new program called “crafting corner” to give crafters in the community a place to socialize.

While crafting corner is a scheduled event, crafters bring in their own individual projects and work on them alongside others and their projects.

“The idea is just for anybody to get together to share crafts, share ideas, visit, socialize and have an afternoon of stress-free relaxation,” said Jan Palmer, organizer with the program.

“The thing is, it’s not a teaching thing –  it’s a social thing. You’re bringing your own things to work on.”

The first crafting corner was held in the library on Jan. 11.

In attendance, was about half-a-dozen community members with crafts including making a toque, cards, water painting, and punch embroidery.

Palmer said she considers it a success for their first gathering.

“With this many people turning up when they don’t even know what [to expect]? You’re just reading on a poster or on the library page to bring the craft that you’re working on and come to the library? I think this is an excellent response.”

The library said they will be running the meetings monthly so long as there continues to be a community interest.
