Belfast — Belfast Community Works, a new group forming to share skills and resources for making and fixing things we use in our daily lives, is hosting three spring events, all free and open to everyone.

The first is a Fiber Fix-It and Make-It morning Saturday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to noon at the First Baptist Church, 95 High St. There will be demos, workshops and projects all morning including spinning, knitting, clothing design and up-cycling, sock puppets, a kids table, silk painting, crochet and more. Everyone is invited to come learn new techniques and meet others excited about working with fiber.

Thanks to meetings that began this winter, Belfast Community Works is taking shape, after having has been discussed among friends and community groups in this area for several years. BCW has the longterm goal of creating a fun and inviting permanent space for makers, builders, tinkerers and dreamers of all ages, encouraging innovation, creativity and connections throughout Belfast and beyond.

The next two Fix-It events also will be on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon: April 22, Bike Repair and Maintenance; and May 20, Garden and Yard Works. The next organizational meeting is Wednesday, March 29, at 6 p.m. at Belfast Free Library. For more information, visit or the Belfast Community Works Facebook page.
