On June 27 the Poland library hosted a DIY fabric coaster making event.
All materials were provided by the library, including a range of fabric for participants to use to decorate their coasters.
“You’re limited only by your creativity,” said Missy Williams, the adult programing librarian at Poland.
Williams provided all of the fabric from her home, and organized the event after being inspired by a project on Pinterest.
To begin the project each participant was given two pieces of cork cut into circles.
They were allowed to pick out what ever fabric they wanted, including more than one type to create a pattern.
The participants were then shown how to trace and cut the fabric to fit the cork, then offered two types of Mod Podge to finish the project.
This is the first time the library has put on this crafting event.
The next adult programing event, according to Williams, will take place Aug. 20 where participants will be taught how to make pom-pom door hangers.
All adult events must be preregistered through the library web site because space and supplies are limited.
