For this weekend’s Craft-ernoon -- on March 8 at 2 p.m. -- we will all work together to create a collage that will be part of our spring-themed bulletin board in the children’s area. This craft differs in that we will not be producing something to take home.
Imagine ordering your house through the mail. Imagine it arriving in a big box of boards, nails and window panes. You could put it together yourself or hire somebody to do it. This is what a lot of people did in Takoma in the early 20th century.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Black History Month Craft-ernoon and made these beautiful designs. Here is how they came out! We used paper, glue and scissors to create these patterns with inspiration from the quilts from the community of Gee's Bend, Ala. We do a new craft every other Saturday at 2 p.m. - all are welcome!
