Brown bag crafting Tuesdays at library

Have you ever wanted to learn or perfect a craft? How about sharing a craft you have a passion for? The opportunity has arisen!

Starting in January, anyone interested in working on their current craft project, and maybe sharing their technique, will be meeting in Detroit Lakes Library's meeting room.

We'll be meeting every Tuesday from noon to 2 p.m., so feel free to bring your brown bag lunch. We're hoping to have an array of different crafts like knitting, scrapbooking, quilting...the more the better!
