Turn an old handbag around

BRADFORD — Do you have a handbag you are ready to throw away? Maybe you are tired of carrying a purse and are ready to put it in storage, I mean the trash? If this is you, then bring that old dilapidated, boring purse or bag to Bradford Public Library on Tuesday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m.

Kathy’s Krafts will be hosting a “make-it, take it” makeover class called “Yo-Yo Purse!” Using some coordinated fabric, participants will be creating material Yo-Yo’s that will turn into a beautiful covering for your “old” handbag.

Call the Bradford Public Library at 448-2612 to receive your class material’s list. Right now, you can drop by the library and see some of Kathy’s purses up close and personal in the library’s display case. Refreshments will be provided.
