Instructor: Judy Shrock
First and Third Wednesdays, June 2 - October 20, 2021 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Participants will pick the project of their choice and Judy will help guide them from the first cut to the last stitch. Bring projects already started to finish in class, or Judy can help with ideas for projects. Participants will bring their own patterns, materials, and sewing machine. Those without their own machine will be assisted with making other arrangements to borrow one.
This program features "rolling enrollment"; as participants complete projects, spots will open back up for more to participate. Check the schedule periodically, watch for announcements, or contact the Center for updates about open spots.
Class limit is five, with rolling enrollment over the duration. Cost: Free for members and non-members. Register to save your spot by calling (260) 636-8000 or at the Center.
"My love of sewing started with my grandmother on her treadle machine. I made my clothes and things for school. In school, I took Home Economics and also took clothing in 4H. My interest in sewing then led me to take two years of training at Hedmark's School of Fashion Design in Fort Wayne. After graduation I was married and sewed for my four children and myself. When the children entered school I started a sewing school in my home called the Sewing Basket. Following that, I worked at my brother and sister-in-law's fabric and sewing store in Albion.
In 1991 we moved to Kentucky where I taught sewing at the Frankfort Sewing Center for several years. Since returning to Indiana I have been doing sewing class at the Apple Tree Center, a mission of our church. When Augusta Hills Learning Recreation and Community Center opened, it provided me an opportunity to offer free sewing classes."
