Kids learn the basics of sewing in Randolph County

ELKINS, W.Va. - For nearly two decades the Elkins Sewing Center has been teaching kids from all over the country how to sew.  

This week, 20 kids were tasked with designing and creating their very own quilt. Participants had very little sewing experience if any and were taught different techniques and were eager to be out of the house.

“It’s better than just watching T.V. and I like to do hands-on things instead of just watching somebody else do it.  I’m working on my rows for my quilt and then I’ll sew them together,” said sewing novice Ellyse Goddard.

The sewing center hosts classes and camps throughout the summer and evening workshops in the fall.  Quilts will be completed Friday and the Log Cabin Quilters Guild will showcase them during a local quilt show.
