Develop your sewing skills while you work on a historically styled apron. The aprons can be made for personal use as well as worn in August at this year’s sesquicentennial celebration for Nashville.
A mentor will be available to guide participants through the project, but participants must bring their own white bed sheet material, which will be used to create the apron. RSVP is required for this event.
For those that are planning on making a traditional apron using bed sheet material, you'll want to bring a white, twin sized bed sheet.
For those that are looking for a more modern design, depending on what design you choose to go with, you'll want to bring 2-4 yards of fabric.
With a modern design that does not include a bib, just around the waist you may only need 2-3 yards. If you are looking to make an apron with a bib top (a full apron) you will want to bring closer to 4 yards of fabric to sew with.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask
Not interested in making an apron, but simply want to learn how to use a sewing machine? You are welcome to attend as well; a mentor will gladly assist you.
