As the weather becomes frigid the kids may be itching for new activities to explore. Why not bring out that sewing machine that has been collecting dust and put it to work with a great new sewing project? It’s a great activity to work on together and it might just spark a lifelong interest. The Youth Department has a great collection of sewing books waiting to be discovered. Here are a few book suggestions to start you on a new sewing adventure.
