History Space: Apron Sewing Workshop
In the 18th century, ladies of all levels in society wore an apron every day. This morning class teaches the skills needed to hand sew a linen apron appropriate for a working woman. The class offers an introduction to the required hand sewing stitches; participants will leave with a partially completed apron and the skills needed to complete the project. Space is limited to twelve participants; registration required. Previous sewing experience is helpful, but not necessary. $30 class fee includes a precut fabric kit and thread.
