Where’s the Love?

Are you ready for it? That most pressure-filled of holidays? No, I’m not talking about Thanksgiving or the winter holidays that require you to spend time with your family. I’m talking about Valentine’s Day. Either you’re in a relationship and you feel you have to be romantic and do something “special,” like make a commitment. Or you’re unattached and every blessed thing around you says you’d be so much happier if you were in a relationship. Trust me, that’s not always the case.

Maybe you’re looking for a way to give someone a gift that you made with love with your own two hands. (Read: cheap!) Or maybe you want to give yourself the gift of learning to do a craft you’ve never done before. Either way, you should plan to join us on Tuesday, February 7th at 6:00 PM for the first Hands On Workshop of the new year – Valentine Crafts with Alicia. Pittsburgh Craft Collective member and co-author of Microcrafts, Alicia Kachmar will help us make a few Valentine-inspired items. We bet you will LOVE trying something different and taking the time for yourself to be creative.

HOW is a series of hands-on workshops for adults and teens. You will learn from skilled craftspeople. Dig in and try things out in a creative, supportive environment. Previous HOW programs have included Bookmaking with Hannah, Creepy Crafts with Lynne and Cardmaking with Julie.  At these workshops, instead of sitting quietly, being lectured to, you will participate in making your own projects. At the end of the evening you get to take your project home with you to give to that special someone, even if it’s yourself. Take some time out to learn to do something new or to rediscover an old favorite hobby. You won’t be sorry you came!

Most materials are provided. Registration is required. To register, email us at newandfeatured@carnegielibrary.org or call 412-622-3151 and ask for Julie or Melissa.

We’d LOVE to see you on February 7th! 
-Melissa M.

    I reject your VDay dichotomy wholeheartedly, but do enjoy the holiday crafting opportunity.
