Posted on: June 7, 2018

Donations of arts, crafts supplies and craft books have been filling up the Murphy Library break room.   Acting Librarian, Melissa Barker, was happy to see all the treasures that await shoppers at the Friends of Murphy Library’s annual Crafts and Crafts Supplies Sale.

The sale takes place this Thursday and Friday, June 14 and 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the meeting room at the library in downtown Murphy. Everyone is welcome to come by and find the perfect gift or the makings of a fun summer project.

Local crafts people including Sammie Simpson, Ronney Craig, Jo Ann Allen and Sharon Francis sell finished crafts, sewing machines, fabrics, scrapbook and stamping supplies, and they give free crafty advice! Volunteers for the Friends’ will be at tables filled with quilting fabrics, yarns, paints, brushes and other art supplies donated by library patrons.

Free demos include sewing machine maintenance at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, and stamping and scrapbook demos at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Friday.

Friends of Murphy Library sponsor the sale to buy prizes for the Cherokee County Schools Spelling Bee, co-sponsored by the Cherokee Scout’s Newspaper in Education program and to raise funds for more books at the library. Call 837-2417 for details.
