Basic sewing community education class planned at New River CTC

New River Community and Technical College is offering a basic sewing skills class through Zoom video conferencing on Nov. 12 and 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The class will be led by Megan McKemy, a skilled crafter with experience as a seamstress. Attendees will learn valuable skills such as various hand stitches, basic repairs and how to read a pattern. The class will conclude with attendees using their newly acquired skills to make their own personalized holiday stocking.

Tuition for the class is $35 each, and students should preregister by Nov. 6. Attendees in the class will need to supply their own materials for the class. They will receive a supply list along with the Zoom link after they have registered for the class.
