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. 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 childrens sewing projects are fun and are a great way to learn basic sewing techniques.

In the Kids sewing class, numbers are limited to 4 children so each can receive lots of attention and they are carefully supervised.

Additional Dates: 20 July 2018, 25 July 2018

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.
