If the thought of Valentine’s Day makes you cringe, and you can’t wait to see February in the rear-view mirror, Mesa Public Library has just the thing for you!
Join them online for Snarky Heart Needlecraft: A Workshop for Disaffected Romantics led by local artist Samuel Buelow from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24. You’ll learn to make your very own collection of grumpy, crinkly conversation hearts that you can take smug satisfaction in all year long.
No needlecraft experience is necessary, however, due to the instructional nature of this program, registration will be limited. Be sure to register early to save yourself a seat in the virtual Zoom room! Pre-made take-and-make supply kits are available at no cost from the main service desks at both Mesa Public Library and White Rock Branch Library. You will be required to register to attend the event prior to picking up your kit.
Buelow is a fiber artist who specializes in felting, crocheting, knitting, temari-style embroidery, and weaving. He holds a PhD in anthropology from Indiana University Bloomington, and he conducted his field work in Central Asia (Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) where he was influenced by the elaborate felt art traditions of both countries.
This program is free and open to the public and will be conducted online via the Zoom platform. To obtain your meeting link and access to the program, registration is required. Register through the event calendar at LosAlamosLibrary.org or call 505.662.8257 for assistance.
