* This workshop is part of both our Sustainability Series and OCTUBER: a month-long celebration of potatoes at Hatch! *
A yummy baked potato – delicious, nutritious, but not quick to cook. Solution – sew an insulated pouch that cooks baked potatoes in the microwave in minutes. The sewing instructions will include some simple quilting, a trick for turning neat corners, and top stitching. A sheet will be distributed in class outlining the cooking directions and instructions for washing the 100% cotton pouch. Bonus: cook sweet potatoes or corn as well, and warm up rolls or tortillas in a flash.
Some machine sewing experience required. If you can sew a straight line, you are ready for this class!
All materials and tools are provided.
This workshop is for adults and older children ages 12+. Children ages 12-17 may attend on their own with their parent or legal guardian’s signature on Hatch's waiver form.
Registration is required.
This event takes place at WFPL’s Hatch Makerspace, located at 20 Summer Street in Watertown, just a few blocks away from the Library. Hatch is an entirely free workspace full of tools and materials that you can use anytime we're open.
