Learn to sew and make a rice bag

Learn how to use a sewing machine and make a rice bag to relax sore muscles. 

Come to the Maker Hub this Wednesday, Feb. 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. and learn how to sew with a hands-on project!

A rice bag is a great easy way to start to learn to sew on the sewing machine. You will learn how to sew a straight stitch and turn a corner on the sewing machine. After your bag is stitched you will fill it with rice and then learn a simple hand stitch to close up the bag. You heat the bag and lay it on top of sore muscles (i.e. your shoulders after you have spent hours at the computer).  Instant relaxation!
