Is your sewing machine gathering dust? Mandi Coulter from Open Studios will join us for two workshops in May to help you discover the basics and special features your machine offers. If you don't have your own, try your hand at one of the library's two Janome 3160 QDC machines. These hands-on workshops are limited to a small group, and registration is required.
