The Bayside Historical Society will host an open sew event at the castle in Fort Totten on Sept. 14.
The event, which will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., is $8 for historical society members, $10 for meetup members with advance RSVP and $12 at the door for nonmembers.
Attendees should bring a completed work - or work in progress – for show and tell. It could be a quilt, garment or accessory.
Those thinking of taking part in the event should also bring supplies to use during the open sew. A few sewing machines will be available, but those who have one should bring their own.
There will also be a pressing station with an iron and ironing board as well as a cutting station.
Attendees are also encouraged to cross-stich, embroider, knit or crochet.
There will be a share table that includes fabrics, craft and sewing books, thread and sewing supplies.
Light refreshments – water, coffee, tea and cookies – will be available, but attendees are also encouraged to bring their own lunch or snacks.
For those who do not have a project to work on, there will be a pattern and supplies on-hand to make dolls. All materials will be provided.
The dolls will be donated to help children prepare for surgery and other medical procedures.
The historical society is located at 208 Totten Ave. in Bayside. For more information, visit the group’s website.
