Maker in Residence: Amy Griswold: May/June 2016

PPLD's Maker in Residence for May and June of 2016 was Amy Griswold, a professional seamstress with over thirty years of experience in clothing construction and industrial sewing. She is self-taught and continued her education as an apprentice in her sister’s shop, Mary Pope Custom Sewing, where she learned techniques in alterations, custom clothing design, re-upholstery, canvas work, as well as large scale production industrial sewing. Her body of work includes everything from wedding gowns and costuming to boat covers and custom reupholstery. Her motto is “show me a picture and I can make it for you.”

Hello, I have a new sewing machine and would like to learn how to better use this for constructing my own clothes. Will you be offering another maker space class in the near future?

Thank you for your interest in the sewing machines at PPLD. We currently don't have another sewing class scheduled at Library 21c. East Library also has sewing machines and holds sewing classes. They do have a number of classes scheduled in November and December. Please check the East Library event calendar to see times and dates and to register for those programs!
