Japanese Kimekomi Balls

May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month.  To recognize and honor those with an Asian Pacific heritage we will be creating beautiful and elegant Kimekomi Balls.  They traditionally have their roots in Japanese culture, but also have a contemporary Western twist. While some of the designs may be found stitched on temari balls, for others we have drawn on the rich American tradition of patchwork quilt blocks to inspire new patterns. Our ADULT DIY craft day is May, 12 - 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm in the meeting room.  Since we will be using a sharp blade to make these balls the class is strictly restricted to Adults Only.  Everything is provided but registration is required.  Either call the library at 281-492-8592 or register here to reserve your spot. Come and have a fun time with us. Hope to see you there.
