A hand sewing workshop for youth ages 10 and up. Students will be provided with all materials and written instructions to learn basic hand sewing stitches (and how to remove them). Basic skills such as threading the needle will be taught and students will be able to independently thread a needle and sew on their own by the end of the course. Guided projects include learning how to patch clothing and replace a button, darn a sock, sew a pillow, make a roll-up tool organizer and make a belt pouch. Students are also encouraged to bring clothing from home that needs to be patched or have buttons replaced! Participants are free to create hand sewing projects from their imagination and in each weekly class they’ll have a choice to either do a guided project or work on their own uniquely designed projects.
