The Lost Art of Sewing!

Just recently, my own daughter asked me to sew her toe shoes for dance class.  Being that I never learned to sew myself, I did what I always do – and asked my dad for help… (Yes – he sews!  Sadly, I never quite learned the art of sewing from him. It is something I plan to do though).

Sewing is something I truly wish I had learned to do as a child.  Maybe if I had started as a child, it wouldn’t

seem so daunting.  Great news for the children of today though – SLPR is offering a great sewing class for children this winter!

Fabric Bunting Banner for Children – Saturday, February 20th, 10am to 12pm.  Ages 8 and up.  $15 resident, $25 non-residents.  $6 supply fee paid to instructor.

I will be honest –I had to look up what a “fabric bunting” in fact was.  (Remember – not much sewing background here…).  So, for those of like myself that are not quite sure what a fabric bunting is – think a banner that children can hang in their rooms as decoration .  Google it – they are really cute!  

Children ages 8 and up will be able to choose a fabric that they like, and will learn how to sew this magnificent decorative piece…all by themselves!  The class is geared for beginners and the seasoned little seamstress/tailor. 

Pre-registration is required.  Participants can register online at www.slpr.net, or stop by the SLPR office and register in person.  Questions?  Please email Nancy at nmuffley@slpr.net.   Here is to the next generation of talented tailors and seamstresses!
