The New Community Family Resource Success Center offers sewing classes for beginners or those who want to brush up on their advanced sewing skills. Held on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., the class allows sewers to bring in their own projects and receive one-on-one help from instructor Barbara Alston and center volunteer Denise Swiney. The sewing class is free however participants are asked to bring their own sewing machines, fabric and decorative additions. The Family Resource Success Center is located inside the Pathmark Shopping Center at 131-185 Bergen St. in Newark. For more information, call 973-565-9500.
