Doomed to Dance
Sunday, November 8 at 11 AM *

Annie Barrows will read from Doomed to Dance, her sixth and latest installment to the delightful Ivy & Bean series. Ivy and Bean have begged and begged - and finally get - ballet lessons. They thought that ballet meant leaping and kicking and wearing cool costumes. They really have no interest in learning to dance gracefully. How will they get out of the big recital without breaking their promise to their parents to finish the course?

* Please note that this is a special Sunday morning event.

Crocheted Poinsettia SUE APPELBAUM instructs how to make a
Crocheted Poinsettia
Sunday, November 8, 1-3 PM

Made in red, green and cream, June Gilbank’s design makes a perfect poinsettia — a large one would be lovely as a table centerpiece or room decoration, and a smaller one could be used to pin on a hat or coat, as a package decoration, or in any way you see fit. Using other colors, it can be an all-season decoration for an outfit or room. A great stash buster, this project will teach you the magic ring.
