As part of our celebration of the Harriet Tubman statue “The Journey to Freedom,” we've put together an embroidery craft kit for grades 4 and up. Kits are first come, first served, and will become available on Monday, May 16th in the Library lobby.
The kit includes an embroidery hoop and needle, blue fabric, and metallic thread in silver and gold. You'll just need to provide scissors. We think this kit is totally doable for grades 4 and up, but the younger end of the age range would benefit from a parent's help to complete the kit. We'll follow a video tutorial from creativebug, a database with thousands of arts and crafts tutorials. To access creativebug for free, visit this link and click “Go To Resource” to create your free account. Then, watch this video to get started. We've already marked the Big Dipper constellation on the fabric for you, so you'll mostly want to watch the video chapter titled “Embroidery.”
