Thanks to the campaign of Madrona Community Council board member Karin Richard, the Madrona playfield shelterhouse is seeing increased programming this winter. We wrote recently about the new Friday morning storytime sessions for kids 5 and under, which have been hugely popular so far with at-capacity crowds as seen in the photo.
Starting next week, the shelterhouse will host a weekly sewing class as well as a monthly sewing workshop through the Garfield Community Center.
The weekly class is for ages 16 and up and runs Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:30, with two sessions from Jan. 11-Feb. 8 and Feb. 15-March 15. Cost is $25 and you can bring a sewing machine or share with a friend.
The workshop is on one Sunday a month from 12-4pm, Jan. 23, Feb. 20 and March 20, for $25 a class. Here’s the description from the Garfield CC:
Each month will have a different theme fitting with the season, taught by a professional clothing designer. Workshops for this quarter will feature: wine bags, gift bags, and learn how to follow a pattern for skirts or pants. If you register ahead, you may also choose to work on your own personal project that you need help with. Call to find out what the theme/project of the month is. Basic sewing skills required to register for the workshops.
You can register for classes online or call 206-684-4788.
