A four-week Stitching 101 class is being offered at the Rassach Museum. The class will meet Tuesdays in October from 6pm-8pm.
Discover some local history as you learn the basics of sewing and stitching!
Join the Stitching 101 class for four weeks of tutorials and take home your own Possibles Bag at the end. We will be using upcycled materials, but feel free to bring your own. Class size is limited, so register early to ensure your spot. Sewing machines will be provided, but you may bring your own.
Topics will cover pattern reading and assembly, required supplies and their uses, basic hand- and machine-stitching techniques, and much more. The class is geared toward beginner sewists with no experience, but people of all levels of experience are welcome. If you're bringing your own fabrics, please note that flannel or canvas are recommended, however, this project can also be completed with light leather-type materials or plastic leathers for more experienced sewists.
Leading the class will be Amber Olson, an avid self-taught sewist who has been been in practice for more than 25 years. She's excited to share her passion with the community.
The $50 fee covers all four sessions. Participants ages 14 and younger will require parent supervision and registration. Registration will be confirmed upon receipt of course fees. Call the Rassbach Museum at 715-232-8685 (11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday) to reserve your spot.
Payment may be made by check at the museum, directly through PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by Venmo.
