Stitch in at Kilbirnie Library

On Monday the 21st March,  Kilbirnie library was a hive of stitching activity. We were very happy to host the Wellington Embroiderers’ Guild who embroidered in the Large Print section from 10am-2pm.  They chatted with our customers (some of  whom were ready and waiting when the library opened) about the projects they were working on, different embroidery techniques etc.

During the two weeks leading up to this event the Wellington Embroiderers’ Guild stuffed our display cabinet with an amazing and inspiring range of embroidery projects.  The nose prints on the glass we had to clean off daily is evidence of the popularity of their display.

We started the morning off with a Stitch-a-Story preschool storytime where the children were entertained by the Sewing Box  Puppets who enacted the story of the brave little tailor.  Afterwards the Embroidery Guild’s youngest member, Remy Hollis (4) helped other young stitchers embroider a picture onto a piece of plastic canvas.

I’d like to say a big thank you to the Guild for brightening our library and inspiring our customers.

A fantastic day was had by all.

On Saturday June 25th Kilbirnie library will be having a KNIT-IN from 11am-3pm and we’d love to see you there.  If your knitting group would like to support the running and advertising of this event, could you please contact Anna at Kilbirnie library on 387-1480. We’d love to hear from you!
