Sewing workshop for teens

teal sewing machineThe OSU Extension Service is bringing the art of sewing to the Purcell Public Library for a two-day workshop for teens, “Sewing 101 for Heroes”, at 2 p.m. Monday, June 29 and Tuesday June 30 (registration is for both days).

Guys and girls are welcome to learn to sew a tote bag with superhero fabric to keep for yourself or give as a gift.

No previous sewing experience is required, and instruction will be almost 1-to-1 with the help of home community education volunteers.

After the workshop, get more inspiration for projects with one of the sewing books or DVDs available at the library or sewing books downloadable from home.
