What kind of classes does Creativebug offer? Check out this video to get a taste of what you can learn!

There are tons of sewing classes on Creativebug, and it's a great skill to learn. However, the cost of even a basic sewing machine can be a barrier for many people.

That's why the Blackstone Library offers sewing machines as part of our Library of Things! Check one out for free with your library card, and see if sewing appeals to you without the upfront cost of a new machine.
