“Glitter, Glam, and Glovettes” Workshop on December 4th At the Escondido Public Library

The Literacy and Lifelong Learning Department will be hosting a Glovette workshop at the Escondido Public Library from 6:00PM - 7:30 PM on Tuesday, December 4th. This workshop introduces Michele Aubuchon, the designer of “Glovettes”, who will bring in these fingerless gloves for people interested in wearing gloves to protect their hands from the sun or over a pair of traditional winter gloves just to glam them up. These gloves can be worn while still providing functionality to do most anything. They’re perfect as presents as the holidays are around the corner. School age children and adults are all welcome to attend. The creative fashion sense Michele has incorporated in her designs will attract many who are interested in expressing their creative sides and fashion styles and sharing them with others.

Glovettes was founded in 2011 with the goal of “providing wonderful products while raising money for the American Cancer Society”. This event is free to the public, but you must reserve your space by contacting Literacy Department Specialist, Natalie Mason at (760) 839-5450 or nmason@ci.escondido.ca.us. Learn more about Glovettes by visiting their website at www.glovettes.net.

This event will be held in the library, presented by Michele Aubuchon, designer of Glovettes, taking place in the Turrentine Room, on the second floor. Michele will display some of her own designer gloves as well as assisting others in glamming-up and decorating already-made gloves to take home.

The Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido. For more information on this and other Literacy and Lifelong Learning events, contact (760) 839-5440.
