DAY OFF OF SCHOOL = ART AT THE LIBRARY

Bring your children to the Brainerd Public Library for an upcycling art project during their day off of school on Thursday, October 18. Happy Dancing Turtle will be at the Brainerd Public Library on Thursday, October 18th at 10am to work with children to use old fabric to create a new quilt. We will be reading "Joseph Had a Little Overcoat" by Simms Taback and then together we will create a design on a square of old fabric, which we will then make into a small quilt for display in the library. Registration is required by call the library at 829-5574.
