Now that the weather is cooling down, it’s a good time to work on sewing and quilting projects. Learn how from local resident and quilting teacher Rebecca Hansen. She will be at the library from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 3 signing copies of her new book, Seaside Quilts, that will be available for sale.
Co-authored with Carol Porter, this quilting craft book is full of beautiful, easy-to-make projects for beach-inspired decor.
Hansen is also a member of the Lakeland Quilt Club and will bring along samples of simple projects that anyone can make.
Another good indoor craft is creating your own greeting cards. Hope Beezley will show you how at the library’s monthly Make and Take Card Class at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 6.
For a $7 class fee, she provides all the supplies, materials, and instruction; plus you get to take home all the cards you make in class. Advance registration is needed, so be sure to sign up at the front desk or call (574) 834-7122.
Later that day, the library salutes our nation’s veterans with the first program of our November Military Series. Wendy Fairchild, whose father was listed as missing in action during the Vietnam War, will present MIA in Vietnam at 5:30 p.m. It is open to the public free of charge.
Have you ever had an unexplained or other worldly experience or ghostly encounter? Come to the Professional Paranormal Investigations Round Table Discussion at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8 and share your experiences. Founded by Steven and Jennifer Hodson, Professional Paranormal Investigations investigates paranormal activity throughout Indiana and surrounding states and will present audio and video evidence of the existence of spirits and hauntings.
Participants will be invited to share their stories as well. Geared toward adults, the program is open to the public with free admission.
In the Youth Services Department, the Tuesday After School Crafts and Stories at 3:30 p.m. for grades K-3 will continue through November.
The teens in grades 6-12 will gather for the Teens Only Movie at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6 to watch a PG-13 rated animated comedy film about Springfield’s celebrated, doughnut-loving family and their flight as fugitives after they accidentally pollute the town’s water supply.
Since Wawasee School District students have a day off of school on Friday, Nov. 7, keep them entertained by bringing them to Storybook BINGO from 1-2 p.m. Kids ages 4-10, will have fun playing Bingo using cards with storybook characters and lots of chances to win prizes.
The week wraps up with the Second Saturday LEGO Club from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8 for children ages 5-12 with the library supplying all the LEGOs and the kids providing the creativity. We ask that children under age nine be accompanied by an adult.
