Simple Stitches for Sewing Success


Open to the Public

Event Ticket Required

Hand-sewing was a basic 18th-century life skill. At least forty trades in the 18th century relied on hand-sewing as part of their trade work. Sewing tools can be organized and protected by a small wallet made of pockets, usually called a sewing roll. Participants in this class will make a sewing roll based on an original in the Colonial Williamsburg Collection. This handy organizer can be used in a variety of modern ways. Limit of 8 participants. Participants arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be admitted.

Historic Trades and Skills Family workshops are designed for participants age 7 and older. Kids 7-13 must be accompanied by a ticketed adult. Kids 14-17 must be accompanied by an adult, either participating (purchase a workshop ticket) or non-participating (with a free Chaperone ticket).
