Carolyn Harris is a featured artist

WARDSBORO — Carolyn Harris is the featured artist of the months for June and July at the Wardsboro Public Library.

Harris is a multi-tasking crafter, seamstress, and accomplished quilter. She has been sewing since she was a young girl when she sewed all her own school clothes. Her focus has evolved more towards crafting and now to her newest technique — paper piecing projects which was learned at a workshop held at the Wardsboro Public Library.

After many years of teaching ending with guidance counseling, retirement allows Harris to split her time between her home in Massachusetts and her vacation home in West Wardsboro where she still enjoys needlepoint, counted cross stitch and knitting not to mention outdoor winter activities, and gardening as well. She is an active member of the Saxtons River Artisans Cooperative.

The Wardsboro Library at 170 Main St., will display Harris' work during library hours, Monday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 2 to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Some of her work will be for sale and the proceeds will be donated to the library.
