Sewing Basics: Sew a String Bag!
Wednesday, Jun. 7, 2 pm
Join us for a beginner’s sewing class! During this hands-on workshop, you'll learn the ins and outs of a Singer Sewing Machine, including fabric properties, pinning, straight stitching, back stitching, and pressing. With these foundational skills, you'll be ready to tackle your first project: a stylish and functional string book bag!
Don't worry if you don't have any experience with sewing – our instructor will guide you every step of the way. And whether you bring your own ½ yard of cotton fabric (quilting cotton works well) or use fabric provided by us,
you'll leave with a handmade creation you can be proud of.
This program is perfect for ages 12 and up, and will be held in the library's Maker Space. Space is limited and registration is required. Please individually register each person attending. Call 209-558-7814 for more information.
