With every catalog produced by the Palatine Park District, a variety of classes, both old and new, are offered to the community. In the 2013 fall catalog, a new series of hands on classes will be offered for adults, featuring projects inspired by the popular social media site, Pinterest.

Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing the things that inspire you. The website allows participants to save, or pin, images to their virtual bulletin boards. Each image links to the original website for the subject of the photograph, so users can reference the original recipe, directions, shopping details or further information about the pin.

According to Pinterest class instructor, Heather Sawicki, "The beauty of Pinterest is that they have something for everyone and you can always find what you need. "

One of the problems with Pinterest is that many people pin these great images, and then do nothing with them. That is about to change at Palatine Park District. Sawicki will offer two separate Pinterest Project classes featuring a variety of seasonal projects. The holiday projects scheduled for the Tuesday, Nov. 5, class include Santa and reindeer wine bottles and a Mason jar snow globe. The next class will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 11; watch for project details at www.palatineparks.org. Classes are held from 7 to 8 p.m. at Community Center, 250 E. Wood St., Palatine. The fee each date is $25 for residents and $31 for nonresidents.

Sawicki adds, "If you sign up for Pinterest Project Classes, you will walk away with a great finished project, directions on how you can do it at home, and inspiration for other projects I have completed along with gaining the confidence to DIY at home!"

Registration for these classes can be complete online at www.palatineparks.org, by mail, by fax, or in person at Community Center, Falcon Park Recreation Center, or Birchwood Recreation Center.

For information about Pinterest classes, please contact Lisa Schroeder, special interest coordinator, at (847) 496-6229 or lschroeder@palatineparks.org.
