Ready, Set, Craft!

Pom Pom Kit

Check out our new Makery Craft Kits

July 6, 2021

Before the shut down, the second floor Makery was a place for patrons to create their own art. It played host to sewing classes, painting classes, and cooking classes; just to name a few. Patrons could also come in and create works of art of their own. Now that life is getting back to normal, the Lewiston City Library is looking forward to making the second floor Makery available to patrons once again.

The MakeryAlong with the regular supply of crafting materials comes a few new and exciting things! With the re-opening of the second floor Makery, the Lewiston City Library is happy to introduce a new series of items for in-library check-out: Craft Kits! The Library has a variety of Craft Kits designed for entry-level crafters. These kits include: knitting, crocheting, card making, hand sewing, counted cross stitch, pom-pom making, and embroidery. Each kit includes all of the tools, supplies, and instructions necessary for beginning crafters to be successful.

To check out a Craft Kit, all you have to do is stop by the second floor help desk and fill out a one-time Makery Agreement Form to ensure all Makers have read and agree to our Makery Policy. Library staff will then check out the kit to your library account and you are ready to get crafting! When you're all done, just return the kit to the help desk. 

A library card is required to check out one of our Craft Kits. If you do not have a library card, we can get you one for FREE! Just bring in a photo ID and proof-of-address (piece of mail, drivers license, etc) and your new library card will provide you access to all of the library's physical and digital resources, including Craft Kits.

Craft Kits are for in-library use only.
