Needle art group to meet at library

The West Feliciana Parish library is relaunching Needles, Hooks, and Books.

This adult program will take place at 2 p.m. every Wednesday, starting Oct. 6. Anyone who hand sews, knits, crochets, embroiders, cross stitches or works in any other portable medium can bring their works in progress to the library to craft as part of a community of fellow artists.

All skill levels are welcome to attend, and experienced library staff can help you learn a craft you're excited about, even if you're a total beginner.
