Join Ann Arbor District Library for an evening of embroidery and Austen on Tuesday January 23, 2018 (TONIGHT) from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in the Downtown Library's Secret Lab. There will be a short presentation on needlework in the Austen era and a demonstration of embroidery styles and stitches. Each attendee will create their own needlework keepsake—a personalized, monogrammed handkerchief—with plenty of guidance to get those stitches started.
