Sewing program to be offered at the Taylor Community Library

Members of the American Sewing Guild will offer three short sewing programs in November at the Taylor Community Library.

The programs, for students ages 12 to 15, are set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 3; Tuesday, November 9; and Wednesday, November 17. Admission is $5 per class. The library is located at 12303 Pardee Road.

Each class will work on a separate project and students may register for classes separately. The November 3 project will be a pillow case. The November 9 project will be a tote-type bag. And the November 17 project will be a holiday item: either an apron or a bun cover.

The American Sewing Guild is a national organization that is open to all who believe sewing is an art. The members concentrate on stitching projects: any type of garment (clothing) sewing, quilting or interior decorating projects such as making curtains or pillows.

The members involved with the Taylor Community Library program are part of the Detroit Chapter and call themselves the "Taylor Downriver PM." The group meets from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month at the Penrickton School for Blind Children at 26530 Eureka Road in Taylor. The monthly meetings often feature guest speakers.
