Twins N Needles Announces Vintage Sewing Adventure in Tulsa, OK
Lara Neel and Lisa Neel started their company, Twins N Needles, to offer unique craft educational events. Their first event will be the Vintage Sewing Adventure in Tulsa, Oklahoma, their hometown. The weekend will offer more than 40 hours of presentations and hands-on workshops from experts covering the sewing innovations that began with the invention of the home sewing machine in the 1800’s and accelerated right into the late 1900’s.
Workshops, Presentations and More
There’s a little something for everyone. Speakers include a professional corsetiere, the author of Sew…the Garment-Making Book of Knowledge, a nationally recognized machine quilting and Featherweight maintenance instructor, the Education Director at the Cherokee Heritage Center, a vintage sewing pattern teacher and much more. Of special interest to anyone who may be interested in sewing but have no previous experience is the class titled “Help, I Inherited a Sewing Machine.” The Vintage Sewing Center & Museum, Inc. will also offer special tours of their collection to those participating in the weekend.
