Feel­ing artsy? Crafter­noon @ Cum­mings, a monthly adult craft ses­sion, will turn trash into trea­sure at the Pe­ter & Julie Cum

mings Li­brary, 2551 SW Mathe­son Ave., Palm City, at 2 p.m. Wed­nes­day. Up­cy­cle a 2-liter plas­tic bot­tle into an in­door planter. Ma­te­ri­als are pro­vided.

An­other op­tion at the Cum­mings Li­brary: Join an in­for­mal group, Cre­at­ing for a Cause, at 2 p.m. Aug. 16.

Stitch, knit, cro­chet or make craft items to be do­nated to lo­cal or na­tional pro­grams. Bring your skills — or maybe learn new ones. The li­brary has some sup­plies and two sewing ma­chines avail­able.

This month, the group will be work­ing with Ryan’s Case for Smiles, mak­ing pil­low­cases for kids at Martin Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal. A pil­low­case re­quires one-third yard of fab­ric for the bor­der and three-quar­ters of a yard for the main pil­low- case. Fab­ric should be 100 per­cent cot­ton (no flan­nel!) in kid-friendly de­signs. The li­brary does have some ma­te­rial on hand, but do­na­tions are wel­come.
