PARIS — Girl Scouts of Maine is offering a “Sewing 101” six-week series for all area girls in grades six to eight at Oxford Hills Middle School.

They will learn basic sewing techniques, including hand sewing, machine sewing, how to use a pattern and how to handle different textures. The girls will participate in a community service project while honing their new skills. Other projects will include a jean patchwork pillow, a pin cushion or a project of their choice!

The program will be held at Oxford Hills Middle School from 2 to 4 p.m. one day a week for six weeks starting in March. The cost is free for registered Girl Scouts and $12 for non Girl Scouts. Membership assistance is available.
