Hazel L. Incatalupo Children's Makerspace PHLab What is a Makerspace? About Palm Harbor Library


Our new makerspace for teens and adults

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.
