Hand Sewing  

Saturdays, 1-3 p.m.

Ages 10 through adult 

Join us to learn basic hand sewing. Hand sewing is a basic easy-to-master skill. In a world where faster is often considered better, the practice of hand sewing often gets overlooked. Learning to hand sew helps improve fine motor skills, self-confidence, and patience.

Our teacher will guide students through the process. The classes are cumulative: each class builds on the one before. 

Supplies needed:

  • hand sewing needles-size 5-9 (not embroidery needles)
  • snips or scissors
  • pin cushion/holder
  • spool of dark thread 
  • spool of light thread

The teacher does not recommend getting a poor quality pre-packaged sewing kit.
