Kids Learn to Sew
4-week workshop – Learn the basic techniques that will help inspire creations to come! Each week we will learn a new technique or skill to help build confidence. Projects will be straight stitch projects to help master the basics of keeping a straight line, seam allowance and clean stitching.
Pick your session – please make sure you will be able to commit to all 4 classes.
What will we make?!
March 4th 5:30-7: 45 PM
First class, we will go over Pattern reading and layout, and choose which pattern we will be working with for the next 3 weeks! Students will be able to choose from a shirt, skirt, shorts, quilting or a bag pattern! Once the project is chosen the pattern will be given to the student, we will go over the supply list for each student and start the designing process!
March 11 5:30-7: 45 PM
Students will work on their pattern and sewing it together. They will bring needed supplies for the project. Each student will work on cutting out their patterns and fabrics! They will mark any necessary notations to the fabric from the pattern! And get started sewing if they are done cutting out!
