About a month ago, the Homosassa Civic Club started a new skills program–the Sew Cool! Workshop.
Held in the Old Homosassa Learning Center and led by coach Faith Peix, the workshop is open to any level sewist. Whether you’ve never stitched a stitch or can make elegant gowns, Faith and her mother Geraldine Callahan, will help you along your sewing journey.
Several sewing machines, yards of fabric and other sewing supplies were donated to the Learning Center this year, allowing the program to be free of charge and open to the public!
I’m a pretty good sewist and started making quilts a few years ago so I stopped by to check the program out!
The Sew Cool! Workshop reminds me a bit of what I imagine the old time quilt groups and sewing circles were. A place to create, have fun, and get to know the people in the community.
If you are interested in joining the workshop, they meet every Thursday at the Old Homosassa Learning Center at 10950 W. Yulee Drive in Old Homosassa from 12:30 – 3:00. You can bring your own sewing machine, fabrics, and project, or use the many items that have been donated.
Other adult programs are being scheduled. (I overheard that there’s an upcoming fishing class with NatureCoaster Captain William Toney!)
