Did you know March is known as Craft Month? I didn’t, but what better timing for me to deliver on my promise to write a blog post about all the amazing craft books I keep borrowing from the Library!
If you are a crafter, what type are you? The type that works on one project at a time or the type that switches from one project to another one? Let me tell you, I am the latter, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I am not alone here at the library will my crafting obsession, we Librarians seem to be a creative lot! In fact, there are sometimes disagreements among us to see who gets to tidy the craft section in our shelf checking and tidying rotation.
Listed below are just some of the crafts we have been dabbling in:
Knitting – Crochet – Embroidery – Macramé – Weaving – Clay work – Candle making – Sashiko – Felting – Applique – English paper piecing – Quilting – Jewellery making – Punch Needle.
Last year I finished my first embroidery project, a cushion cover which I am still super excited about. I also managed to finally crochet a straight edge on a scarf, which I think was pretty impressive and earned me a “well done” from Sharni who is our resident crocheting expert.
Whether you are feeling inspired to try something new, or even re-discover an old favourite our extensive collection of craft books will surely keep you up all hours.
I can’t wait to try punch needle & sashiko!
