The Andover HUB Offers Summer Sewing for Kids  

Wednesday, August 14

Press Release

Kids aged six and up who are looking for something to do are invited to spend the morning working on a simple hand sewing project at The Andover Community Hub on Wednesday, August 14, from 9:00 to 11:30 AM.  The Hub is at 157 Main Street, next to Pizza Chef.

Using donated materials and decorations from the shelves of The Hub Closet, participants can make a stuffed animal based on their own drawing, create their own fabric travel Tic Tac Toe board, or work on a sewing project of their own design.  The morning is organized by Andover parent and teacher Tina Nussbaum Wagler.

Kids and their parents are also welcome to stop in at The Hub any Tuesday or Thursday from 9 to 10 AM during August to pick up supplies for creative projects they might like to work on at home.  And teachers are welcome to “shop” for supplies they can use in their classrooms during the coming school year. The whole idea of The Hub Closet is to pass along donated craft and office supplies that might otherwise end up in the landfill, and turn them into art or useful items instead. 

Anyone with questions about The Hub Closet can email Tina at
