Teens Discover Creative Craft Of Amigurumi At Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library             

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals or figures. In recent years, it has become an increasingly popular project for crafters around the world.

Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library will have an introductory Young Adult demonstration, “Crochet Amigurumi,” on Wednesday, June 12, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.

In this workshop for teens in grades 9 through 12, novices and experienced crafters alike can learn how to create these imaginative toys by using just a few stitches. Library staff member Marie Picon will demonstrate all the stitches needed, so even beginners who have never touched a crochet hook are invited to attend. Discover how a variety of figures can be made, including adorable tiny animals, people look-alikes, or colorful monsters.

The demonstration is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.
