MARCH 2020 – St. Louis, MO.
During these unprecedented times, Baby Lock has introduced Sew In This Together, a program designed to help people make it through the day through a shared love of sewing.
As part of the program, Baby Lock is offering 60 days free of its SEWED online classes for sewists across the United States and Canada. The classes cover a broad spectrum of topics, including sewing basics, new techniques and projects of all kinds.
“At Baby Lock, we know the true power of sewing and how it can bring us all together. We hope these video classes will provide opportunities to learn new skills, act as stress relief and even serve as a way to make gifts for others,” said Baby Lock Director of Sewing Susanne Voss.
The free classes can be accessed anywhere on any internet connected device in any room of the house.
In addition, Baby Lock is encouraging sewists to make and donate homemade face masks. The masks can be made from thick, breathable cotton, found in a variety of materials around the house like t-shirts, dish towels and pillowcases. A step-by-step walkthrough video is available. The video, along with the instructions and pattern, can be found on the Baby Lock blog at https://babylock.com/learn-and-create/inspiration/face-masks. The page also includes access to patterns as well as a list of organizations in need of masks.
“We know our sewers love to help those in need and today is no different,” Voss said. “We have had over 14,000 visits to our blog page since we posted our video. That demonstrates their readiness.”
