Evening of “knottiness” planned near East Northport

January 9, 2018 by  

East Northport residents who are interested in taking up a new hobby this winter are invited to come to a class that will see them craft a decorative piece for their home.

Hydrangea Home, which can be found in Northport, will be hosting a class that will teach the participants how to use macramé techniques to create a triangular wall hanging they can display in their home or other setting. The organizers noted that the workshop will be well suited to beginners, and groups are welcome.

The session will run for two hours, and the participants will be taught how they can select the right materials for the piece of work they wish to create, as well as how to tie the basic knots and then use them to craft the design. The admission price includes all of the materials, including the cord that will be used and the 12-inch brass dowel that will be incorporated into the project. A local print company can create a variety of materials that can help to promote an event like this to the community.

January 21 has been chosen as the date for this “knotty” evening, and it will be held at 146 Main Street in Northport. The registration fee for the workshop will be $45 each, and both tickets and more details can be obtained through the organizer’s Facebook listing.

Local library to host slumber party with a twist

June 28, 2017 by  

A special sleepover has been planned for the East Northport area that will see kids and their favorite stuffed toys enjoying night out at the library.

Kids, siblings, and parents alike are welcome to attend the Stuffed Animal Sleepover. Those who participate will come to the library on a Friday night along with their fuzzy friend, and once everyone has arrived, they will be treated to a reading of a special story that has been selected just for the occasion.

When it’s time for the evening to draw to a close, the people will go home for the night, but their stuffed companions will have free run of the facility. The kids who took part will have a chance to hear all about their adventures when they come to pick them up the next afternoon at 1:00 pm. This activity is being offered on a free-of-charge basis, and while registration isn’t necessary, the number of spaces available is limited. Digital copying can be utilized to make copies of coloring sheets and other handouts that can be used during a function like this.

This evening of after-hours library fun has been planned for July 14 from 7:00 pm until 7:30 pm, and the children will come back at 1:00 pm the next day to pick up their toy and find out about how they spent the night. Half an hour has been allotted for this portion of the activity, and more information can be found on the Northport-East Northport Public Library’s website.
