School is out for most, but teacher Carroll Newcomb will open her classroom for the third summer in a row to anyone who wants to learn to sew or take time to relax over a project in progress. During the year Carroll teaches family and consumer science to high schoolers, and now offers her skills to the community at large. Alma Gates, an accomplished seamstress and member of the American Sewing Guild, will assist with stepping-stones and how-to information. One of Alma’s missions in life is to teach everyone to sew.
The sessions are open to anyone, young or old, male or female, who wants to learn these skills, who needs help on something, or who just wants to get out of the house and enjoy other people while working on a project. If a person hasn’t a clue what to make, Carroll and Alma have a lot of ideas to share.
So, come to EPHS on Thursdays from 10-1:00, with your projects and questions, as well as your lunch. Use the back cafeteria door entrance, just past the greenhouses. The first session is June 20.
