Make a holiday stocking for someone you love. You will need ½ yard each of stocking and liner fabric. If you want a contrasting heel and toe, you will also need a 5 X 10” scrap. The library has some fabric to share; if you’d like to use it, please arrange a time to come and make your choice.

Participants must be able to thread a sewing machine, make a bobbin, and sew seams.

Registration is required. Email Barbara at In your email, please include, in addition to your name, whether you will bring a sewing machine

This workshop is for adults (18+ years). Teens will be admitted only if fewer than 12 adults enroll. Interested teens should ask to be placed on the waiting list.

November kicked off the library’s first-ever sewing workshops. At Sewing 101 on  November 8 (to be repeated on January 10) sewing expert Jennifer Serr taught students sewing basics and how to use a paper pattern before they sewed a drawstring bag. Students will create a zippered pouch on December 6, from 1 – 3 p.m. (Class is full but will be repeated February 7.) Christmas stockings will be the project on December 13 at 10 a.m. All materials and equipment will be supplied. Registration is required so email if you are interested. We also need volunteers to help with classes.
