Through a variety of fun projects your child will learn how to sew, problem solve, plan and design. The skills gained through this class are the fundamental skills for a life-long sewist. This is a great refresher course for those who have not sewn recently. Beginning sewing is the pre-requisite for all of our classes making this class a great place to get started.

Please send your child with a small snack and water bottle each day. 

Mornings can be chilly in our summer climate, please send your child with layers so they are comfortable. 

Have your child wear sturdy shoes where the foot is not slipping around for greater foot petal control ( flip flops are highly discouraged).

If you have fabric you would like to use feel free to bring it along. We provide all materials needed for this class and have a good selection of fabric, however bringing a fabric you truly love is a great way to make a project even more memorable. Please keep to quilting weight cottons with no stretch and pre washed to prevent shrinkage.
