County Extension Service offers free sewing classes


County sewing club offers free classes

Do you want to learn how to sew? Or are you having problems with a project you started and want help figuring it out? Maybe you want to start a new project and need suggestions. Or perhaps you would like to learn how to quilt or use new crafting techniques like "felting." Then consider joining the Pasco Extension Family and Consumer Sciences program's sewing club. Youth and adults are welcome from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the second and the fourth Saturday of the month in the Women's Building at the Pasco County Fairgrounds, State Road 52, Dade City. This is a free, unstructured class that offers the opportunity to spend time with others who like to sew and learn from each other. Seven new sewing machines that were recently purchased with donations from the community are available for use on site, or participants can bring their own to class. Those interested in attending the next meeting on Nov. 14 should call Betsy Crisp at (352) 521-4288.

  2. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big


    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
