Sewing guild to meet in Columbus

The American Sewing Guild neighborhood group plans to meet from 9 to 11:30 a.m. May 4 at Bartholomew County REMC, 169 Deaver Road, Columbus.

The guild’s monthly meetings focus on learning a new sewing or creative skill or working on one of its philanthropic sewing projects.

The May 4 meeting will feature a presentation by former Pratt School of Design instructor Barbra Livesey. She will present several couture garments and a man’s frock coat circa 1870s as the group explores the construction of these garments.

Those planning to attend are asked to bring their interest in sewing and latest project to show and tell.

Sewing enthusiasts of all ages and skills are welcome. The group meets on the first Saturday of each month.
