kids and tween/teen classes

I teach basic machine sewing with a little handwork thrown in. We start with learning the parts of a sewing machine, how to thread it, wind a bobbin, and sew a straight stitch. Then we move on from there. Projects will be fun and creative.

I have a basic set of projects for beginners, including a cute drawstring bag, pillow case, apron, pajama pants, cross body bag, back pack, t-shirt, maxi-skirt, and more. After that, I will work with students individually to determine their next project.

All students will learn how to lay out a pattern, read and follow pattern instructions, problem solve, and personalize their projects. Learning to sew allows kids to make their own creative ideas come to life.

I accept students beginning at age 7 after they have completed first grade. Younger kids are still developing the dexterity in their hands needed to operate a sewing machine safely.

Each student is responsible to bring a sewing machine. If you don’t have one, I recommend shopping at The Sewing Nook, near Bagel Place just north of 34th on Bell. It's a great place to buy because you're supporting a local business, and they can provide maintenance on all the machines they sell.
