In April of 2016 we opened our new makerspace for teens and adults with the addition of five sewing machines.
These machines, all Viking Emerald 118 models, are available for in-library use every day. Each comes with a basket of
sewing supplies including a ruler, scissors, and more. Our makerspace area is furnished with a collapsible patterning and
cutting table and five OttLite brand lights. It also has a Community Closet full of fabric and sewing supply donations from the
community that are free for anyone to use. We will soon be adding an iron and ironing board.
-You must take a certification class in order to use the sewing machines
-Available for ages 8 & up (children under 12 must be supervised by a parent or guardian)
-Machines can be checked out at the Adult Services desk for 2 hour periods
-You must bring your own hand sewing needles and pins, as well as fabric and patterns
