Sewing with a Twist
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
This workshop is intended for ages 9-18.

A sampler is traditionally a cloth embroidered with designs, mottoes, the alphabet, and different types of stitches, to showcase skill. This class takes the idea of a traditional grid sampler and reworks it into a mixed art piece. Participants will design and create their own one of a kind mixed media stitched samplers. We will use fabric, beads, basic embroidery stitches, charms, colored pencils or any other materials that might strike our fancy to create a very personal sampler. No two will be exactly the same.  Please note that participants should feel comfortable handling a needle.

WELL WATER: Film Screening and Q&A
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Come join us for a screening of "Well Water", which will be followed by a Q&A with director Sharisse Zeroonian.

The film chronicles the relationship of Ben and Cora, two Massachusetts teenagers who want nothing more than to be older, wiser, and have everything figured out. But as the movie goes on, they learn to slow down and not be in such hurry to become adults. The film also explores the issue of ignorance/prejudice (when it comes to other people's backgrounds, where and how they choose to live). 

The film will start screening promptly at 12:30. This event is free and open to everyone, and will be especially great for teens and young adults interested in DIY-filmmaking (parents are welcome, too)!

This is not a library-sponsored program.
