International Sensation : Behind Closed Doors

AN INTERNATIONAL SENSATION

Looking for something exciting to read?

This is a hair raising debut, both unsettling and addictive.

A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.Appearances can be deceiving… Terror is contagious…

and impending peril creates a ticking clock

that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale

toward it’s grisly,  gratifying conclusion

( Publishers Weekly )

This is one book you will want to grab at the Library.  It will leave you breathless.

Knit-Wits

crochet-ripple-blankets
Have you ever wanted to learn how to crochet or knit, but didn’t know anyone who could teach you or maybe you’ve been out of practice and want to start again!

Have you heard about the Knit-Wits? Remember, the holidays are around the corner and handmade gifts are much more special when they are made with love!

Come join Laura and the rest of the Knit-Wits on Weds. 11:30 – 12:30! You’ll enjoy learning new skills, sharing new/old skills and new/old stories, and meet new friends!

I love meeting new friends! I’m sure you will too!I remember when my girls were younger making Barbie outfits, blankets, scarfs, and ponchos for them. Eventually, they wanted to learn too! It warmed my heart that my girls wanted to learn. My oldest daughter still makes crochet blankets and scarfs!

I’m so thankful that my granddaughter loves to quilt by hand. Too many young people are no longer interested and the “old ways”, when a young person is interested in a skill, it keep the traditions alive and going for another generation. I’m sure my granddaughter will pass along her quilting skills to her daughter one day! I know when she goes to Arkansas over the summer, she loves going to the quilting with all the older ladies. They are all over 60, but just love when she comes and sit with them around the quilting rack and quilts with them. Again, something young people just aren’t interested in.

Maybe you can join our awesome meeting, learn how to crochet and share this art form with your daughter, niece, or granddaughter! Keep the tradition alive for many more generations to come!

( Why not just bring them along )
