Want to make a card?

The monthly Creating Community Workshop will be card making, which will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 25, in the Atrium of the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.  

Card making is a rewarding, creative outlet that involves different paper crafting skills such as stamping, watercolor, creative folding, and many other techniques. Card making can easily fit into your schedule whether you have hours or minutes to craft. In this class, they will make two all-occasion cards.

Instructor Debbie Douglas retired from teaching school in New Orleans in 2010. She and her husband, Bill, moved to Sylva at this time. She has been involved in scrapbooking and card making for 20 years and currently holds classes at the Jackson Country Senior Center. She has some of her stamped crafts at End of Main in Sylva and Dogwood Crafters in Dillsboro.  Douglas is a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and will use these products in the class.

This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library. The Jackson County Public Library is a member of Fontana Regional Library (www.fontanalib.org).

This program is free of charge. The class is limited to 10 people. For further information and to sign up for the class, call the library at 828.586.2016.
