About Kids Introductory Sewing Class

The Kids introductory sewing class will teach your child how to use a sewing machine, plus some foundation sewing skills.

At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine. It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn. Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

In the Kids sewing class, numbers are limited so each child receive lots of attention and be carefully supervised.

What will my child learn?

How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
Practice sewing straight lines, curves and corners
Make a lovely and useful pincushion

Sewing machines, equipment and fabrics provided
I am insured and hold a PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certificate

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kids Introductory Sewing Class are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
