Free se­wing les­sons for teens on again in Hud­son

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Ase­cond ses­sion of free se­wing les­sons for tee­na­gers will get un­der­way next week in Hud­son at St. Ma­ry’s Church Hall. The five week se­ries, be­gin­ning Feb. 1 and run­ning conse­cu­ti­ve­ly each week, is being of­fe­red by the St. Ma­ry’s Church Hall Se­wing Circle, which has exis­ted since 1908.

Mem­ber Wan­da Smith said the group wants to pass its skills on­to a new­ge­ne­ra­tion.

Smith notes the loss of home eco­no­mics courses in schools mean ma­ny youths are unable to do such simple things as sew a but­ton on­to a garment, or re­pair a hem.

As ma­ny as 20 stu­dents can learn through the classes how to thread a needle, use a se­wing ma­chine, stitch a hem, sew a but­ton and more.

The free St. Ma­ry’s Church se­wing les­sons will be held from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m, from Feb. 1 to Feb. 29, at the St. Ma­ry’s Church Hall, 261, rue Main in Hud­son. Ma­te­rials and se­wing ma­chines will be pro­vi­ded. Call St. Ma­ry’s at 450 458-5897, or Wan­da Smith at 450 458-0481.
