If you like to sew, need some practice sewing, want to knit, crochet or do other hand sewing creations, or just like to share ideas, the Sunday afternoon Stitch and Chat at Headquarters Library is for you. There are tables to use for patterns, sewing machines to practice sewing and lot of free materials to us. Staff from the MAKERspace team will be available to assist if needed. All levels of expertise are welcome.
MAY is National Pet Month so we have plenty of safe pet toys you can make with or without sewing. Everyone loves their pets so this is is a great way to share your love. You may take your toy(s) or we are partnering with the Alachua County Humane Society to donate any extras. The Humane Society of North Central Florida is our community’s leading resource for pets and pet owners. Their mission is to eliminate the needless euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets in North Central Florida. In 2018 the the Humane Society, Gainesville Pet Rescue, and Helping Hands Pet Resue joined forces better provide services for pets and the people who love them. Be sure to check out the video about the Humane Society.
