Sewing Circle - Aprons (2/9)

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Room 114
Instructor: Ellen Crary
I grew up wearing handmade clothes by my grandmother. I was always in awe of her skill and talent and wanted to make sure that these skills were not lost. I love the mix of creativity and precision that sewing requires while at the same time creating something beautiful and useful! Teaching sewing to others combines my love of teaching with my love of sewing.
Along with teaching at MMU After Dark for several sessions, I have previously had a small boutique children's clothing business on Etsy, local shops and at holiday and farmers markets. I love to sew gifts, bags, quilts and home decor.
