Mountain Iron, MN, October 18, 2023 ─ The Arrowhead Library System (ALS) will be

providing Handwoven Take & Create Art Kits to member public libraries to distribute

November 1-30, 2023. This art experience has been designed by Minnesota artist Erika

LeMay, for beginners to explore the art of handweaving. Take & Create Art Kits will

include all supplies needed for the Handwoven Bookmark project: a wooden beginner

loom, tapestry needle, two mini skeins of yarn, scissors, and an instructional printout. A

video tutorial will be shared online for participants.

These kits are a wonderful introduction to one of the oldest crafts in history,” said

LeMay. “My hope is to share this skill with others and instill the sense that it is more than

just weaving, it’s about what we discover in the process and the experiences that are

infused in the fibers.”

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Erika and to offer a new art experience

for regional patrons,” said Mollie Stanford, ALS Regional Librarian.
