Children of both genders who demonstrate readiness may begin to learn to sew between age 9 and 11. Lessons are given in the home and a parent must be present at all times for children under age 14. Parents will be expected to be an active participant in their child’s lesson, much as they would with homework brought home from school. Parents will be asked to do the ironing for their children, with direction of course, and other activities as deemed necessary by the instructor.
Children’s classes are held on weekends and are offered Saturday, 9 AM and 1 PM, or Sunday at 2 PM. Summer hours will be more flexible and can vary, providing the child is out of school at the time classes are scheduled. Children do best when they are rested and alert. The intent is to make the class interesting to them so they may embark on learning a skill that will last them a lifetime. If they are tired from a day at school, the environment is not conducive to learning.
That being said, Kid’s Classes are typically held for a length of 2 hours for $60 per session. Maximum number of children in a class is two and a reduced multiple student rate will be offered. Each child is required to have their own sewing machine following the guidelines for adult machines. A parent for each child must be present during class time, no exception. There will be homework for each child to complete and the parent will be expected to be able to help with this.
Kid’s projects can vary based on interest level but typically start with a simple pillowcase with a decorative trim.
Other projects for children:
Alphabet letters, stuffed, to spell the child’s name.
Vest with or without a hoodie
American Girl doll clothes
Quilt-simple block style
There are many other projects suitable for children, dependent on their skill level and interests. Please review the remainder of the website and you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email.
I look forward to hearing from you!
