Using a CCTV to sew on a button

Are you having difficulty threading a needle or sewing on a button?

Have you given up sewing or want to learn how to sew with vision loss?

This hands-on workshop encourages you to learn and then practice basic hand sewing, machine sewing and other sewing skills.  Choose to create something for yourself or a loved one!

You will have the opportunity to:

  • improve your cutting, pinning, and assembling skills,
  • learn simple adaptive techniques to more easily thread a needle,
  • learn to use a sewing machine, and
  • share your sewing experiences, fears, frustrations and triumphs with others.
