Sewing & gardening taught this month in Worland

POWELL, Wyoming — Worland area residents can pick up a new hobby for indoors and out this month through the Northwest College Worland Center.

For those wanting an inside activity, Angela Leone will teach Beginning Sewing from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, in the University of Wyoming Extension Sewing Room at the Worland Community Center Complex.

She’ll discuss basic sewing skills (threading, tension, bobbins), necessary and not-so-necessary sewing supplies, decoding patterns and altering garments (hemming, mending and hand sewing).

Participants are encouraged to bring their own sewing machine but, if needed, can reserve one when registering. No sewing knowledge required.

Cost for this class is $5.

For those who’d rather be outdoors, Caitlin Youngquist and Nick Kruger will show how to succeed at Raised Gardening. This free four-hour training starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 23, at the Worland Community Center Complex and will progress to the Community Gardens.

After a hands-on workshop building raised beds, participants will learn how to plant and care for their garden. They’ll also leave with the plans to build their own raised beds.

For more information and to register for these and other classes, contact Sheri Averett at the NWC Worland Center, 307-347-8541 or WorlandCTD@nwc.edu, or visit http://www.nwc.edu/worland.
