Textile fibers group meets each Thursday

FORT PLAINS — 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.

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 fun and non-threatening setting. In addition to memoirs, participants work on novels, short stories, poems, and more.

Both groups are free to the public.
