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.

They have participated in many fashion shows and have been featured locally in the press and on television. It is their mission to promote independent clothing design in Iowa.
