Sew Fast, Sew Easy: Teen Sewing and Fashion Design

Calling All Teens: Learn how to design and sew your own fashions at Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library.Image of sewing machine

Youth ages 12 to 19 can stop by the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library on Monday, January 30, to talk fashion with professionals from SiNGA, a fashion and textile design program that teaches people how to design, sew and market their own clothing. Learn the ins and out of using a sewing machine, and work your way up to selling your own creations!

New skills will be taught at every workshop. We'll start with the basics--teens with little or no sewing knowledge to more experienced fashionistas are welcome. Participants will help to determine what they want to learn and accomplish through the program. Stop by the first workshop on Monday, January 30, from 4:30-6:30 p.m., and check us out!
