Textile fibers group invites local creatives

FORT PLAIN — Creative individuals seeking an outlet for their talents are invited to the Fort Plain Free Library each Thursday afternoon for the Creative Textile Fibers Group and the Writers at Fort Plain, according to a news release.

From 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., makers of traditional textile arts and handcrafts such as embroidery, needle felting, crocheting and knitting gather for the free and casual Creative Textile Fibers Group. Each week, participants share patterns, advice, ideas, laughter and friendship as they work on individual projects.

That is followed from 3 to 5 p.m. by participants of the creative writing group facilitated by published writer Joan Caska. Wordsmiths from varied writing backgrounds, genres, interests, goals and experience levels share their work in a non-threatening setting. In addition to memoirs, participants work on novels, short stories, poems, and more. Each free session features constructive feedback in a supportive setting.

Both groups are free to the public.

Call (518) 993-4646 or visit the library at 19 Willett St. for more information.
