Madison Public Library loves to empower people to learn new skills and practice useful crafts. Sewing is a great way to let your creativity show, do something hands-on, and make something that you can use (or maybe even wear) in everyday life. See upcoming opportunities to learn to sew or practice your craft in a club.
Friday, February 2, 1-3pm | Alicia Ashman Library
Have you ever wanted to learn how to sew? Local artist and illustrator Rita Salm will cover some sewing basics while helping participants create something fairly simple and great to have - a tote bag! This program will deal with sewing machines, patterns, and putting all of the pieces together to create something you can take home. All materials and supplies will be provided by the library.
Space is limited to just 5 participants and registration is required. Registration opens two weeks before the event, on January 18 at 10:00AM.
UPDATE 01/24/24: This class is currently full; to be added to the wait list, please call 608-824-1780 or email email@example.com.
Adult Beginning Sewing: Teddy Bears
First-time or beginner sewers can learn to sew with local artist Rita Salm during these classes offered at Alicia Ashman Library in the spring. You will use provided materials and supplies to select fabrics, cut patterns and put all the pieces together to create your own teddy bear. By the end of the class, you should have your very own bear to take home! Both classes are the same and space is limited to just 5 participants each so please only sign up for one session.
Registration is required and opens two weeks before each event - register for the March 1 class on February 16 at 10am and for the April 5 class on March 22 at 10am.
