“These creations feature colorful zippers that are reinvented to brighten, enlighten and delight."

The Sun City Center Sew ’n Sews recently held a workshop call “Zipper Art.”

The art is made from recycled zippers and the participants created “wearable art” in less than four hours. 

Evelyn Brown and Pam Davis taught the class of over 20 students who each created a “one-of-a-kind” brooch.

“These creations feature colorful zippers that are reinvented to brighten, enlighten and delight!” Brown told the workshop group.  “It’s a fun way to add art to your wardrobe or a purse.”

The Sew ’n Sews Club provides a place and equipment for experienced and novice stitchers or quilters to learn new techniques, to share in the joy of creating something beautiful, and to enjoy great fellowship.

Membership is open to any Sun City Center Community Association Member and annual dues are $10. Meetings and classes are held weekdays in the Arts and Crafts Building.

The Sun City Center Sew ‘n Sews Club also has a long history of service to the community. Projects during the year include sewing items of need for ‘The Kids Place,’ the VA Hospital, RCMA and other charitable organizations.
