Draft Your Own Skirt
Machine Sewing: Level 1
For Adults: Ages 14 and up

Skirts are fun, versatile and easy to make. Learn to draft your own pattern from a few measurements to sew a simple elastic or draw-string skirt. Pattern materials provided. Bring your own prewashed fabric or use some of ours. Pre-requisite: Basic machine  sewing skills.

We have fabric available for you to use but selection is limited. If you don’t want to take  your chances, please bring two lengths of prewashed and ironed fabric equal to the desired length of your skirt plus at least 6 inches. Allow extra for a fuller skirt. Light to mid-weight cotton or linen is great for a spring or summer skirt. Good fall fabrics include corduroy, brocade, and some decorator fabrics.

Brain Buzz!
Join Dartmouth Grad student, Jacob Heiling, who will be talking about Mutualisms in Nature.
  • Species interactions occur on a continuum
  • Cooperation is an emergent property of interactions between “self-interested” partners
  • Cooperative interactions (or “mutualisms”) can be thought of as barter transactions between species
  • What happens when one partner “cheats”? Are there sanctions against this?
