We will be offering a variety of take-home craft project kits for kids and teens. Some projects may have a small fee for the supply kits – please check the descriptions for full details. Each project will have its own age limits, so please read the full description before reserving a kit.
We hope you will share your completed creations with us so we can post them to a photo gallery! Please send a clear photo and whether you’d like your child to be credited by their first & last name, first name only, or no credit, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photo tip: If sending via email from your mobile device, choose to send it at the original size.
Help Ukraine Baby Yeti Hand Sewing Project
25 kits available
This is a sewing kit that requires fine detail work with a needle and thread. It is intended for kids ages 8 & up. Kits include everything you need except scissors.
Our friend Ellen Brown from Sew It! Workshop designed this baby Yeti from a digital pattern created by a Ukrainian maker on Etsy. Apparently, there are Yeti and Bigfoot sightings in Ukraine, too!
The kits are free to participants and are sponsored by the library. Ellen is donating at least 50% of her profits from this project to the designer as well as two charitable organizations helping on the ground in Ukraine.
Register for a kit beginning Tuesday, May 31!
Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis and registration will remain open until all 25 kits are claimed.
We will notify you when your kit is ready to be picked up.
Kits come with printed instructions and we will give you the link to Ellen’s video instructions.
