Sewing Classes for Children
Let's Learn to Sew!
Sewing gives individuals an opportunity to be creative, problem-solve, and learn new things. When a child learns a new skill, they express joy and confidence. In this world we live in, sewing creates an opportunity to recycle, be self-reliant, and be bold. Let your child experience his or her creativity while sewing clothing, crafts, or quilts. We provide them the experience to learn something new while encouraging a growth mind-set and utilizing math-skills.
Intro to Sew: In our small group classes we are teaching the children how to properly operate the sewing machine.
- The students will learn how to wind a bobbin and thread the machine.
- They will learn what the functions are of the sewing machines and the tools needed to sew.
- The students will sew samples of the various stitches and then they will apply the skills they’ve learned to two projects- a pin cushion and a drawstring bag.
- All materials are included in the class fee $100 (the class is two dates, each 90 minutes in length)
There is also a "private lesson" option. This lesson is two hours in length and covers most of the material in the group session. The advantage of the group session is the repetition of teaching the proper threading of the machine.
After the student completes the "Intro to Sew" class there are many classes available for the students to choose from.
A full list of classes for children can be found here.
There are project specific classes and our signature class, The Sewing Lab is described below:
The Sewing Lab is designed for students to work on individual projects while developing their skills. The student can choose for their first project, either a pillowcase or a pair of elastic waist shorts or pants. This is where the student will learn how to work with a sewing pattern, how to follow instructions, and the various techniques to sewing. *Materials are not included in the monthly tuition. Once the first project is complete the student is guided to projects that will help build on their skills. Sign up here
