Older kids and adults will enjoy jewelry making supplies, paper quilling, embroidery, punch needle embroidery, needle felting, button makers, 3D Pens, a sewing machine and more. We also have a brand new Mac computer that is hooked up to a high resolution photo scanner, medium format printer, and a Cricut Maker 3.  We also have a small collection of hand tools that are available for use in the Makerspace.

CRICUT MAKER 3 – Come into the Makerspace and use our computer to create your projects or design from home! Open a Cricut Design account for free then log in from the Makerspace to cut your files.  Just be sure to set your account for a Maker 3 so your designs are compatible with our machine.
