Cricut Sessions

Lyons Regional Library Now Offers Sessions to learn how to use the Cricut machine

The Cricut is an electronic cutting and drawing machine. Designs are created on a computer and can be cut or drawn onto material such as cardstock, vinyl, felt and fabric. The Cricut can be used to make signs, custom t-shirts, labels, greeting cards, stickers and much more!

The Library will have a limited supply of common materials including cardstock, vinyl and heat-transfer vinyl available for use. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of any given material at all times. Please be courteous in your use of provided materials so that we may continue to provide them for all users.
If you require a specific material or color for your desired project we recommend bringing your own materials. If you are planning to make an iron-on project you will need to bring your own base material such as t-shirts, tote bags or other textiles.

Rules & Regulations:
Cricut Sessions are offered in one-hour time slots that must be reserved through the website. Cricut Sessions are available to active library card holders in good standing who are at least fourteen years of age. Groups are limited to three patrons per session. Patrons may sign up for one time slot per month.

A library employee will assist patrons with their first projects while they learn how to properly and safely utilize the machine. All materials not provided by the library must be approved before they can be used in the machine. Before their session, patrons will be asked to watch a few short videos to familiarize themselves with the machine as well as sign a waiver acknowledging the safety and proper use of the Cricut.
