Youth Sewing Program

Gay Losher Chair

 

Our youth sewing class at Tuolumne County Library was a big success.  We had over 22 kids participate (we lost count when the kits were gone).

 

The kids loved the fabrics that were donated and put into kits by the ladies of our Community Quilt Committee.

 

A big thank you goes out to those that helped at the Library:  Pam Smith, Mary Johnson, Jeanne Legg, Karen Ethier, Holly Harris, Cheryl Ferreira, Wanda Dorner, Sandy Vierra and Lyn McCormick.

 

We pressed, pinned, folded, ripped a few seams, and pressed some more!  We had 12 sewing machines going……the boys especially enjoyed pushing those foot pedals!  We certainly realized the kid’s energy level surpassed ours, but what a great reward to see their smiles and excitement when they held up their completed pillowcases.
