Sewing classes for children are an important part of my class programme. I learned to use a sewing machine at age 7. So I’m committed to the belief that children should all learn to sew when they’re very young (girls and boys!)
This week at Artisan Stitch, I held one of my sewing classes for children, or rather for children and their parents ( to qualify you had to be under 16 and bring your Mum). Attending were Sophie, aged 9, and Libby aged 12, with their Mums Jen & Jackie. Both girls threw themselves into the lesson with enthusiasm and completed their sewing practice sheets, then both passed their Sewing Machine Driving Tests with distinction.
