The Shirt Off Your Back

If you've ever given someone the shirt off your back, then you know the next thing you need is another shirt.

At a two-day class at Pottsgrove Manor on Jan. 12 and Jan. 13, you can not only learn how to make your own, you can make your own the colonial way!.

Wendy Moyer of "Historically Sew" will present the two-day class on making shirts and shifts.

Participants will learn how to draft their own shift or shirt pattern and will have a mostly completed garment by the end of the weekend, according to information provided to the Digital Notebook by Lynn Symborski, the educator extraordinaire at Pottsgrove Manor.

However it's not for everyone.

In fact, class size is limited to six and registration and payment is required by Jan. 4.

The class is open to those 15 and older and the $80 fee includes information packet, personalized pattern and snacks, however fabric and notations are not included.

For more information, call 610-326-4014.
