The Library as a whole body experience

It's common knowledge that the library caters to your research and entertainment needs. You visit the library to do homework, to borrow books or dvds, to use a computer, and even to make copies. But did you know that the library can be a place for activities beyond these common uses? Visiting the library not only provides a work out for your mind and imagination, but can also offer programs for your whole body.

Crafting at the Library: How to Backstitch

Backstitch is a versatile stitch that can be used purely as decorative embroidery or functionally in hand sewing. Backstitch creates a single, unbroken line of stitches that can be straight or curved. The length of each individual stitch can be very short or very long, but the stitches should all be the same length.

Thread your needle and tie a knot at the tail of your thread.

Insert your needle from the back of the fabric to the front so that the knot is at the back of your fabric.
