After School Sewing Program
WE TEACH SEWING CLASSES BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE LOVE TO DO!
Our program is a continuous program focused on teaching our students how to develop their sewing skills while working together amongst their friends.
This program is designed to be a 4 week Program (meeting once a week ) that will allow the student to work on on-going projects that will help them master a variety of skills such as: threading their own machines, reading patterns, color coordination, learning to use a variety of sewing tools, cutting, stitch consistency, appliqué work, terminology and more. Our sewing classes for children will help your child not only to learn to sew, but to also build their fine motor skills, tap in to their creative thinking, build their self esteem, boost their confidence, learn to work as a team and give them a gift of a lifetime. This is a hobby that will last forever.
Teachers: Our classes our taught by elementary teachers! We got this.

If you are interested in joining us for our Sewing Lessons for either Monday or Tuesday you may register your child online or call our shop at 813-661-9000.
