The Milford Community Program is offering two sessions of Sewing by Hand for girls in grades 3 through 5. Lisa Bibring, the Milford Memorial Elementary School Librarian, is the instructor. She has enjoyed sewing for many years, teaching her two daughters.
This program is a fun-filled beginner class in which your daughter will learn a variety of stitches. Students will have time to complete at least 3 of the following projects: a stuffed bear, cat or dog, a sachet, a drawstring bag, a heart pillow, a tissue pack holder, or an ornament. The more experienced students will move beyond the basics to use decorative embroidery stitches on projects such as a handbag, coin purse, butterfly pin, or ornament.
One session will be offered for 8 weeks on Tuesdays beginning Oct. 2 through Nov. 20 from 3:45 to 5 p.m. in the MHS Art Room. The second session will be offered for 7 weeks on Saturdays beginning Oct. 6 through Nov. 17 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in the MHS Art Room. Cost is $65 for Milford residents and $75 for non-residents.
