Kids Learn to Sew class

This Kids learn to sew class is an introductory sewing class for 8-15 years. This class must be taken before children can progress to take any of my other sewing classes for children.

Class Description

  • How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
  • Practice sewing straight lines, curves and corners
  • Make a heart-shaped lavender bag or pincushion

I learned to use a sewing machine when I was 7 years old.  So I know children can learn to sew when they’re very young. What’s more is they learn faster than adults and retain the information longer. Sewing assists in developing good hand/eye co-ordination, manual dexterity, stimulates the creative imagination and aids in project planning. It gives a sense of achievement and self-worth.   I believe that it’s such an important life skill that all children should learn  – Girls and boys.

However, it’s important that they get suitable sewing lessons.  My sewing lessons for children focus firstly on safety. Then we do some fun exercises to learn how to use the sewing machine. Easy children’s sewing projects are fun and are a great way to learn basic sewing techniques.

There are only a small number of children in each class so each can receive lots of attention and they are carefully supervised.

Class arrangements:

Level: Beginners (children aged 8-15)

Children must be collected promptly at the end of each class, even if they are attending for the next class. This is to facilitate preparation & cleaning of the studio and equipment for the next class, and for the tutor to have a break.
