Basic Sewing  101  November 10  (9:00 – 12:00) 
Description:  From basic to artistic, you can do so much (sew much!) if you know how to sew!  This three hour workshop will introduce children ages 8 – 12 to sewing skills as handed down from generation to generation.  They will learn about patterns, basic sewing vocabulary, and hand stitching.  Each child will have the opportunity to complete at least one simple sewing project.  All project materials will be supplied.  Each child needs to bring a pair of scissors sharp enough to cut fabric. This is a History Seekers workshop sponsored by the W Volusia Historical Society. Workshop will be held at the Conrad Center, 137 W Michigan Ave, DeLand, next to the DeLand House Museum. Preregistration required. Call 386-740-6813. FREE for members, $10 for not-yet members

Basic Quilting and other Fun Stuff! 202  November 17 (9:00 – 1:00)
Description:  We will be introducing the three layer quilt construction with a simple project they can use at home.  There will be plenty of choices of colors and design and our quilters will be encouraged to use their creativity.  Children should bring their sewing box with sharp fabric scissors and lunch.  All project materials will be supplied. This workshop is for children who have taken one of Ms. Karen’s sewing workshops already or who know how to hand sew. This is a History Seekers workshop sponsored by the W Volusia Historical Society. Workshop will be held at the Conrad Center, 137 W Michigan Ave, DeLand, next to the DeLand House Museum. Preregistration required. Call 386-740-6813. FREE for members, $10 for not-yet members

An Old Fashioned Christmas   December 1  2:00 – 4:00
Description: Popcorn and cranberry strung to decorate a tree, handmade ornaments to take home.  Glue, glitter, paper, scissors, felt, wire, and more glue! We will have a wide assortment of ornaments for the children to make.  We will decorate the tree in the DeLand House with some of our completed ornaments and the rest will go home.  We’ll also have Christmas cookies to munch on while we work! This is a History Seekers workshop sponsored by the W Volusia Historical Society. Workshop will be held at the Conrad Center, 137 W Michigan Ave, DeLand, next to the DeLand House Museum. Preregistration required. Call 386-740-6813. Ages 8 – 12. Free for members, $5 for not-yet members

The Art of Beautiful Writing – Intro to Calligraphy   December 29    (10:00 – 12:00)
Description: As a counter-balance to our high tech lives, many children get inspired by doing projects that are handmade.  Calligraphy is not only fun to learn, it engages a different part of a child’s brain than regular writing.  Knowing the cursive alphabet is not a prerequisite for this workshop but it helps.  Children will go home with plenty of practice sheets and will complete several small projects as well.  This is a History Seekers workshop sponsored by the W Volusia Historical Society. Workshop will be held at the Conrad Center, 137 W Michigan Ave, DeLand, next to the DeLand House Museum. Preregistration required. Call 386-740-6813. Ages 8 - 14. Free for members, $5 for not-yet members

Coming in January and beyond: Making Victorian Paper Beads with a Twist!, Basic Machine Sewing, Metal Detecting, and many more hands on workshops!
