This month we will be combining our Homeschool Hangouts and our Teen Homeschool Art Club for a special 2 hour creative extravaganza. 

Homeschool Hangout is participating in the 5th Annual March Quilts community art project facilitated by Bib & Tucker Sew-Op, a Birmingham non-profit with the mission of cultivating sewing skills. Each year Bib & Tucker leads participants in the creation of a community made quilt centered around a social theme. No prior quilting skills are required, our teachers will walk homeschoolers through the process. Each homeschooler can use their imagination to design and create a quilt block to be incorporated into this year's community quilt. 

This year's theme will be announced soon! Help Bib & Tucker reach their goal of 1,000 blocks this year!  

Registration is required. Ages 5 through 18. To register, call our children's department at 439-5504 or our young adult department at 439-5512. Email Vanessa at nschildrenslibrarian@shelbycounty-al.org or Kate at nsyouth@shelbycounty-al.org
