When the Holidays become Sew Stressful

With Christmas just around the corner, our schedules become crowded with shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping, attending events, hosting, and cleaning. To name a few.

Amidst the chaos, Junior’s hand-me-downs will still be too long and in need of a good hem before he takes the stage for the choir concert. Missy’s adorable dress will pop a button moments before you walk out the door for the big family dinner, and the new pair of jammies you bought for Dear Hubby will reveal its ripped seam just as you start wrapping them.

Meinders Library and Peggy Jo Harwick have you covered.

For two days in December, Peggy Jo will provide sewing machines and the knowledge to help you fix minor sewing disasters. Hems, buttons, holes or straight seams, bring in your sewing questions (and items) and learn some quick sewing fixes that will take the stress out of you holiday season.

When: Tuesday, December 5 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Where: Meinders Community Library STEAM Room
