Get Crafty for Christmas

At Moor Park Library we are getting crafty – in time for Christmas! Fancy a good yarn?


Come along and get some great ideas from our collection of craft books like Kirstie’s Homemade Home by Kirstie Allsopp. From sewing to rag rugs and soap-making to glass blowing, Kirstie comes up with some really creative ideas.

In ‘Cute and Easy Quilting and Stitching‘ there are some fabulous projects and once you have mastered the basic techniques you can move onto Kitchen Essentials and Gift Ideas for some unique handmade gifts and accessories.

If this seems all too creative what about a crafty novel? Something to curl up with and read about someone else’s creative talent?

Try Maggie Sefton‘s Dropped Dead Stitcha knitting mystery. Jennifer is a top-notch knitter and a bit of a party girl until the night a stranger follows her home. Recovering from the attack Jennifer looks to her friends for support, perhaps a retreat in the mountains, stitching and talking could be just what she needs….

In Debbie Macomber‘s Starting Now Libby has just lost her job and is now trying to rebuild her life. She spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store where she meets new friends like Ava, a shy and troubled teenager who needs Libby more than expected. Can she find romance with the handsome doctor?

For something a little different , Alexander McCall Smith‘s ‘Unusual Uses for Olive Oil‘ may create a bit of curiosity.

Life is so unfair for Professor Dr Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, from the undeserved rise to prominence of his rival Detlev Amadeus Unterholzer, to the ramblings of the librarian, Herr Huber. But when his friend Ophelia Prinzel  tries to match-make and produces an heiress with her own schloss, it seems the professor’s true worth is about to be recognised!

Whatever your creative side, maybe here is the place to find something about it, or maybe you might find another craft to stitch about!!
