Sheepscot Valley Quilters
Meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. from September to June.
Sheepscot Valley Quilters is a small group of quilt lovers and makers – from beginners to advanced. Our meetings are low key and friendly and participation in our projects is purely voluntary. This year’s planned projects include making a sunshine quilt or two for those in need of a hug, learning how to make a block, learning some embroidery stitches to embellish quilt blocks or wallhangings, doing a brown bag exchange challenge as our swap gift at our holiday party, show-and-tell (always!), sharing ideas and hints, and just having a good time with good companionship while sharing what we love! Call Sue Chapin, 589-4863, for more information. We’d love to have you join us!
Meets Thursdays from 4-5:00pm
Stella Holbrook is facilitating a weekly Art Club for kids ages 8+. Bring your own supplies. For questions or more information call Stella or David (father) at 323 -9171.
Needs a facilitator. Lego Club is a time for children to get together with other children and build new, stronger relationships. There is a different project every week. Parents/guardians are invited to engage with their children. Or they may choose to wait downstairs as long as they remain at the library for the full hour. We ask that children, stay UPSTAIRS during Lego Club so as to not disrupt other patrons at the Library.
Basic Literacy Tutoring
There are two trained literacy volunteers who are available to meet with you at the library. Through Belfast Adult Education, we will provide services in reading, writing, math and technology. Most lessons take place once a week for 1 to 2 hours. Lessons are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. This is not a school, there are no “classes,” it is one-on-one training to meet YOUR reading goals. To get started, please contact the Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County or call 338-3197.
