LEWISBURG, (Pa.)— We love scarves – we love the beautiful styles and patterns – so we buy them, but we don’t always know how to wear them. There are many ways to tie scarves, and the French have made wearing a scarf an art form! For the rest of us there is a simple and practical use for those scarves tucked away in our drawers – infinity scarves! Infinity scarves have not only been a big fashion trend, they have taken the guesswork out of how to wear scarves for those of us who may not know how to tie, tuck, or pouf a scarf. Wrap it around your neck twice – anyone can do that!
Packwood House Museum will host a no-sew infinity scarf workshop on Saturday, November 21, at 10 a.m. in the Museum’s Tour Center. Led by Susan Colón, the program is open to all ages and is family-friendly. Bring your neglected scarves (some scarves and all binding supplies will be provided), and we will make them into something you will wear again and again. The class will offer no-sew techniques for most thin-weight and silk scarves. If you are not sure if your scarf can be used in this project, please bring it anyway and we will look at the options! This is also a great time to think about holiday gift-giving – nothing is quite as thoughtful as a gift made by your own hands for the people you love most.
Seating for the class is limited, so registration with a fee of $5 per person is required. The class will be held in the Museum’s Tour Center at 15 North Water Street. Funding for materials has been made possible in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts.
