A Biweekly Sewing Group
Every other Wednesday at 6:30 pm (next meeting April 30)

Do you like to sew? Do you want to learn more about traditional dressmaking? Do you like Steampunk and Cosplay? Do you want to make your own costumes?

Well if you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the group for you! We're starting a biweekly (meeting every other week) sewing group with a focus on Steampunk and Cosplay. The plan is to come together as a group to work on a couple of Steampunk inspired outfits (a woman's and a man's outfit) throughout the summer. Then in the fall, we will raffle the outfits just in time for Halloween to benefit the Friends of the Ada Community Library

If you have no interest in Steampunk and the like, we will still be learning valuable skills from expert dressmakers! You can also bring in your own projects to work on and get some advice. 

We will have a sewing machine on hand and your invited to bring your own - we'll supply the power.

The first official meeting of the group is Wednesday, April 16 at 6:30 p.m. The hope is that we will be meeting every other Wednesday from there on out as long as we have interested tailors in training. 

Also, be sure to mark your calendar for a very special event on Wednesday, May 14 featuring professional costumer Tanglwyst de Holloway! 

Like all library programs, this is a free event. No registration is required.
