T-shirt Workshop

The patrons who attended our t-shirt workshop created some very trendy pieces of "recycled" clothing!

Iowa clothing designers Julie Punelli and Melissa Speridon came to the Library on July 22, 2008, to present a quick lesson in design and re-design, then helped six of our teen patrons transform old t-shirts into some cool new pieces of clothing.
