Photograph of a sewing class. A woman stands in front of a chalkboard that reads "A stitch in time saves nine" while a girl works a sewing machine in front of her. The girls on the facing left appear to be handsewing, the girls in the front are measuring a skirt, and the girl on the facing right is cutting at a table.
