Hand Sewing 101 at the Desert of Maine

August 4, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

$12

Kids will try their hand at sewing simple beanbags or sachets—and then fill them with natural materials from the Desert of Maine like sand and aromatic pine needles!

Kids of all ages will learn the basics of hand sewing while getting a glimpse into the life of the Tuttle family, who farmed what’s now the Desert of Maine in the 1800s. This skill was essential when the Tuttles lived in Freeport—and is still handy today!

This workshop includes a nature walk and guided activity. All ages are welcome; kids under 5 years old must be accompanied by a guardian. All supplies provided.
