Sewing Stitches & Buttons: a How-to
There is an old English proverb, “a stitch in time saves nine” meant to encourage an individual to work through a task, however, sometimes all you need is a “quick stitch” on a piece of clothing. You are invited to join us for Sewing Stitches & Buttons: a How-to at 1:30 pm on Saturday, January 25, 2020 (Snow date: February 1, 2020) at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street, for a few mending lessons. This hands-on workshop, led by professional patternmaker éros lé roi, will include instruction on five different hand sewn stitches and attaching buttons. Sewing needles, thread, practice fabric swatches, and buttons are provided. Participants should bring a thimble, or quilting thimble, and a small pair of scissors to the class. This event is appropriate for ages 10 and older. Register for this free event online, or by calling the Library at 215.788.7891.
