“The colors and designs we choose will define and reflect our spirit and experience.” Hilary Gifford has been sewing since she was a child, and working as a full-time fabric artist since 1980. The beautiful quilt titled “Test Pattern” she has created for our raffle exemplifies her fascination with color, gesture, texture, and how they combine to influence our senses.
Tickets are on sale now at the circulation desk; $5 each or five for $20. The drawing will take place at the Ulysses Philomathic Library Associations’s 38th Annual Candlelight Dinner on November 2, 2019. All proceeds from the raffle directly benefit the library.
Grant Writing Basics
Tuesday, August 13, 5:30-7:00 PM in the Melvin Room
Take this workshop if you have plans to apply for a grant! Robin Schwartz will provide participants with a clear idea of what is expected in grant requests, and how grant panels make decisions. Any grant process is extremely competitive, so writing a clear and effective proposal is critical. Robin is the Program and Grant Director at the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County, and has been administering grant programs (and writing grants!) for over 25 years.
No registration required.
