Free sewing programs at the Fairfield Woods Library

September is National Sewing Month. The Fairfield Woods Branch Library is hosting several ongoing sewing programs beginning in September. Sewing is making a comeback and if you would like to learn or are already an accomplished sewer, the Fairfield Public Library Sewing Studio has something for you.

On Sept. 14 a new six-week program, Sew Trendy Teens, will begin. This program is for teens entering 6th and 9th grade. An identical program for tweens in 4th and 5th grades, Sew Cool Tweens, will begin on Sept. 15. The two groups will learn how a sewing machine works and to operate it with confidence, follow a simple pattern and tap into their emerging sense of style. Small sewing projects will be worked on culminating in a fantastic Halloween Costume that they will design and construct. Some materials may need to be purchased. Sessions will begin at 4 p.m. at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road.

Danielle Weston, a recent graduate of Norwalk Community College, will be teaching these programs. She has been sewing since she was in sixth grade and has been teaching since she was a senior at Warde High School. She loves working with kids and helping them to unlock their creative potential.

Advance registration is required due to the limited space and sewing machines. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event call 203-255-7307, or visit fairfieldpubliclibrary.org .
