Free sewing workshop in Pasadena July 14

Sewing Up a Storm:
Family Free Day and Artist Showcase

Sunday, July 14, 12:00 to 4:00 pm at Pasadena Museum of History

On the last day to see the beautiful wedding gowns in Part I of I Do! I Do! Pasadena Ties the Knot (1850 to 1950), Pasadena Museum of History presents an extraordinary showcase of needlework artistry past and present.  
In addition to marveling over the amazing workmanship of the 19th and 20th century dressmakers whose gowns are on display in the galleries, visitors will be equally impressed by the superb creativity of Louise Green – one of the most successful high-end milliners in the United States.  Green headlines an Artist Showcase that also features silk scarves by Charlotte Chen and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs by Suzanne Ehrmann, Liza Shtromberg, and Anthe Wosczyna (Little Muse Designs). This special shopping event directly benefits the artists and the ongoing educational initiatives of PMH. As you browse the offerings of these contemporary designers, you will be sure to appreciate the fine craftsmanship and find unique gifts.
Feeling creative yourself? Join Ginger Alberti and Michael Sabo as they present Sew Cranky, a free sewing workshop for all ages. Youngsters and adults alike are invited to make keepsakes on the antique hand crank sewing machines provided. The machines, which are up to 80 years old, are beautiful to look at and simple to use. You’ll be amazed!
TICKETS: Free admission to the Exhibit Galleries, Artist Showcase and Sew Cranky Workshop; no reservations required.
