Embroidery will be available during monthly CACTUS programs and during specialty programs.

Other use of the embroidery machine is limited to when a qualified staff member is available to assist.

If you would like to arrange for group instruction on using the embroidery machine, please let us know!

Fee: $5 plus $1 per 1000 stitches if using our thread and backing material. If using your own supplies, $1 per 1000 stitches. Fees are waived only during instructional programs unless otherwise stated.

The library is not responsible for any damage caused to your item by the embroidery machine regardless of who is operating the machine.
