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.
Classes meet once a week and you have the option of two days to choose from. Either Mondays class or Tuesdays.

Ages: 8-15 If your child is close to turning 8 just gives us a call and we can discuss if your child is ready to jump in earlier than later.
March: It's The Little Things in Life
March is all about 'little" projects. The more the better! We will kick off with creating a cute scissor holder while using scraps of fabrics. The student will be challenged to make their own fabric by cutting a variety of fabrics to make one piece. From their they will be making several projects. Each student will be challenged to repeat the project on their own so we know they can do this at home too. The key is to create independent sewers.
April: Sew For The Chef
Let's get back to patterns. This month we will learn how to download patterns online and follow a tutorial. Yep! Independent sewers here we go! We will be downloading a child's apron design, printing the pattern, cutting and following a visual instructional diy online while being supervised. Once, we finish the apron we will make smaller items around the kitchen.
