Balaclavas & Baklava Winter Accessory-Making Workshop
Dec 13 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join WalkArlington, BikeArlington, and Arlington Public Library for Balaclavas & Baklava, a fun winter accessory-making workshop. Sewing experts from the library and BikeArlington teams will teach you to make your own balaclava (a warm full-head covering similar to a ski mask) or a pair of ear warmers to help you feel comfortable walking and biking all winter long. You will have the option to use a sewing machine or sew by hand. All skill levels are welcome and all materials needed will be provided.

There will also be some dessert treats (including delicious baklava) and warm beverages to share while we trade tips and secrets about walking and biking in winter.

The event is free, but RSVPs are requested. Space is limited so don’t delay signing up!
