Sewing Class at the Richmond Aud

We are finally going to start sewing classes again at the Aud. Its been super busy in the Youth Theater, with 3 almost overlapping plays. Wizard of Oz, Jungle Book and Secret Garden. They are doing Jungle Book again now, because the first time this year was with a Charter School. This means I don't have as much work, we can use the costumes from last time. I will only need to make some wolves.

The class is for Middle School kids and is free for anyone who lives in Casco or Lennox Townships. All others will have to pay a mere $20.00 for the 4 week class. We will be working on a Machine Stitch Sample booklet. The booklet teaches sewing machine basics like backstitching and is flexible according to students abilities. A child new to sewing on a machine will be introduced to sewing a plain seam, while a child with some experience may progress a little faster and learn how to do a flat-felled seam and french seams. I will also have other projects available.

Hopefully, the class will be a hit! I'm looking forward to cultivating a love of sewing in the next generation.
