Public libraries are providing free sewing kits

Register for a learn-to-sew kit at the Park Rapids Library at 732.4966.

The free learn-to-sew kits include needle, pins, scissors, fabric, ribbons, buttons, snaps, poly stuffing and instruction sheet for making a drawstring bag.

Sewing is a foundational skill in every culture. Transforming flat fabric into fun, functional and beautiful things can feel a bit like magic. For these reasons, the Kitchigami Regional Library is offering a take-and-make “learn to sew” kit.

This can-do kit provides the materials needed to make your own drawstring bag, simple fabric face covering, sewn stuffed pillow and no-sew stick people.

Families can pick up the kits from the local library Dec. 1-5 during open hours. Register for the kit on the KRLS Legacy Program Facebook page or by contacting the Park Rapids Area Library at 732-4966. The kit is recommended for ages 8 and up.

This free Legacy Program is funded, in part or in whole, with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
