Crafting Together

Are you ready to meet up with others on Zoom to create and socialize? We’re continuing our monthly “Fiber Fun Time”!

Everyone will focus on their particular craft or art project, meanwhile we can talk about techniques & tools we’re using, and we can even demonstrate for each other.

We’ll be able to share information and images of our fabulous creations! Bring your current project; spoon carving, painting, bookmaking, paper craft, sculpting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, needle-felting projects, whatever!

You’ll be in good company to inspire, support and feed your creative soul.

Please contact Gianna at gbird@minlib.net if you have any questions.

The Truth about Murder Hornets: Latest Research on the Asian Giant Hornet
Join us for a fascinating talk with Heather Mattila, professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wellesley College.

Although Heather’s primary focus is on Honey Bees, she has researched and worked with the Asian Giant Hornet and comes to us with a wealth of knowledge.

Her talk will be about this research and will followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

Please register through eventbrite to receive a Zoom link.

Contact Gianna at gbird@minlib.net if you have any questions.

Heather has been a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wellesley College in Massachusetts since 2009. At Wellesley, her research continues to focus on mechanisms of social communication and organization, including honey bee behavior, the chemical ecology of colonies, the microbiology of queens and workers, and impact of nutritional stress on workers. Recently, her work has expanded to examine these topics in bumblebees, Asian honey bees, and hornets. Heather’s research program is supported by a dedicated group of Wellesley students, collaborations with colleagues from universities across North America, and by many colonies of bees that her lab maintains on the Wellesley College campus.
