Youth and adults will learn how to create their own clothing this summer in two sewing courses offered by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Continuing Education Arts and Cultural Outreach program.
“Beginning Sewing” will be offered to youth ages 10–14 from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Wednesday, June 20–22 and June 27–29.
“Fashion Sewing,” ages 15 to adult, will be offered from 1- 4 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, June 20–22 and June 27–29.
Participants of both courses will become acquainted with a sewing machine, commercial pattern and the techniques needed to create clothing. One garment will be completed by the end of each course. Taught by Wendy Dolan and Barbara Cirmo, the courses are $99 each and include some supplies. A list of further supplies will be sent upon registration.
