We want to introduce you to one of the latest additions to our Virtual Library, Creativebug. Your Idea Exchange membership now gives you access to this easy-to-use, online art and craft education resource, offering unlimited access to thousands of classes for every skill level. If you’ve ever wanted to explore a new hobby or brush up on an old one, Creativebug is for you.

If your chosen class requires additional tools, check out the specially curated maker kits in our Unusual Things to Borrow collection. From embroidery and loom knitting to crocheting, these kits equip you with the essentials you need to embark on your crafting adventure.

Creativebug's most popular class, "Beginning Watercolor", guides you through the basic skills needed to craft your own masterpiece in just two hours. The Watercolour Kit from our collection perfectly pairs with this program.

Elevate your crafting journey by delving into the art of bookbinding – yes, we have a kit for that too. It’s the perfect companion for the unique class series, "The Art of Bookmaking". What library lover hasn’t always dreamed of making their own book?

Unleash the potential of the Cricut electronic cutting machine, available at all Idea Exchange locations, with Creativebug's "Intro to Cricut" learning journey. Videos and accompanying Cricut design files let you follow along with your favourite projects, whether you're a seasoned Cricut enthusiast or a beginner. You can even bring Cricut creations to life with some simple electronics in the "STEAM: Make an Animatronic Owl Figure" course.

Members can access Creativebug through the Virtual Library section of our website. More information about Unusual Things to Borrow items and the borrowing details are listed in the library catalogue, also on our website. Staff are available to help in your creative search.

Find your creative bliss with Creativebug and Idea Exchange!
