Declutter Your Life

Thursday, April 13, 6:30pm

Asheboro Public Library

201 Worth Street, Asheboro


Are you thinking about downsizing, but don’t know where to start? Do you spend too much time looking for your keys? Miss deadlines because your schedule is out of control?

Learn how to “Declutter Your Life” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 13 at the Asheboro library with Jeannie Leonard, Family and Consumer Sciences agent with North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s Randolph County Center. Clutter, whether it’s mental, digital or physical, can be a frustrating barrier to a fulfilling and functional home, office and personal life — and it can get in the way of peace of mind. 


Leonard’s workshop will help you get control of your possessions and enjoy a newfound sense of space and freedom. The process and tools you will learn can be applied in any area, from closets to email inboxes and sentimental items.


Craft & Learn: Make Plastic Bags into so Much More!

Monday, April 24, 4-6pm

Asheboro Public Library

201 Worth Street


Create beautiful art and useful objects from plastic bags in an Asheboro Community Craft & Learn event, 4-6 p.m. Monday, April 24. Join mixed media fiber artist and art educator Cassandra Liuzzo to transform single-use materials that would otherwise be thrown away. The project is inspired by compassionate work being carried out by local resource center Keaton’s Place, which is reusing plastic bags to make bedrolls for people experiencing homelessness.

All ages and abilities are welcome, and no registration is required. Participants are encouraged to bring their own crochet hooks and scissors to supplement those provided.


Liuzzo is founder of Shelf Life Art & Supply Co., a new and used art supply store in Greensboro. Her work has been exhibited in galleries such as the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro, the Catherine Smith Gallery in Boone and Brooklyn Fireproof in New York. She holds a bachelor of science in art education degree from Appalachian State University.
