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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is to the next generation of talented tailors and seamstresses!
