Crafts, Civil War History at the Florence Community Library

The Florence Community Library invites you to ring in the New Year with author, historian and quilt artist Peggy Dunn! Dunn will present two January programs for the public: a quilting workshop on Tuesday, January 10, and a presentation about the role of women in the Civil War on Thursday, January 19.

BYO Quilter

On Tuesday, January 10, at 5:30pm, Peggy will demonstrate a “hands-on” approach to quilting. Limited supplies are provided. Participants are asked to bring their own fabric scraps, double-duty white thread, rulers, scissors, quilt batting, and thimbles. We’ll be sewing up a good time!

Civil War Women

Peggy is also at the library on Thursday, January 19, also at 5:30pm, to discuss the role of women during the Civil War. During the Civil War, more than 400 women served as soldiers. Women also worked as spies for both the North and South. Dunn, author of With Hearts on Fire: Women in the Civil War, will discuss their experiences and the ways their lives were changed as a result.

Limited seating is available. For more information, or to sign up for either or both programs, please call the library at (520) 868-8311.
