Unlock Your Crafting Potential


Creativebug is the newest addition to the Library’s growing collection of e-Resources. Watch thousands of step-by-step video tutorials from arts & crafts experts and learn to make anything from ceramics to stitching, book binding to baking, and so much more. With new classes added all the time, Creativebug is a great place to find inspiration for your next craft, party theme, or costume.

Each class is divided into chapters, which makes following along easier than ever, and projects are available for all skill levels, ages, and interests. Users can browse classes by categories including art & design, sewing, quilting, knitting, paper, food & home, jewelry, and holiday & party.

Additionally, Creativebug has a Daily Practice feature, which guides creators in long-term projects and challenges designed to sharpen skills and bring peace to mind. Available practices include a 30-day printmaking challenge, daily color meditation, and guides to help overcome your creative block.
