The Repository Project’s Quote of the Week
“Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks.”
– Dr. Seuss

Traditional Arts

There is something truly special about the work of our hands, and the creation of practical pieces and decorative niceties for our homes, and as gifts to family, neighbors, and friends. Enjoy shopping the books included among the featured titles, and have fun developing new skills, or expanding on your talents as an advanced artist. Learn to knit or crochet, felt, weave, spin, and dye fabrics. Discover the beautiful traditions and modern techniques of quilting. Create belts, wallets and handbags in leather work and leather crafting. Make your own scented candles and soaps. Cover and bind your very own handmade books. In the work of our hands, we create and store wonderful memories. We make everything from the practical and purposeful to art which is created for art’s sake. We preserve important knowledge and teach skills that will be used by many generations to come. Most of all, we hope – in all of this – that you discover a great love of handcrafting!
