Teens can sew a winter craft at SOKC Library

The Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library will present a Teen Sewing Workshop at 6 p.m. Thursday, December 14. Teens in grades 6th through 12th will be able to sew their own winter craft to take home! Don't worry if you don't know how to sew. This is a beginner-level program and we'll show you how with our sewing machine STEAM Powered Maker Kit. All supplies will be provided by the library, and registration is required.

We've also got a list of items you can check out if sewing is your thing!
