Sewing Class Curriculum
One hour a week - that is all it takes for your child to learn to sew and to have fun doing it!
Using the Kids Can Sew & Fashion Design® curriculum, I help your child to learn and to understand a variety of sewing techniques and concepts. The lessons start at Level 1 and progress until the student is ready to use more complex patterns.
Classes take place in a beautiful converted farmhouse loft space. The environment is one of inspiration, fun, and learning.
I encourage my students to take the skills that they learn in class and to use their imaginations and their creativity to experiment with the projects that they create. Each student will make projects that are individual to him or her, and the skills learned in these classes will last a lifetime.
These classes may just become your child's favorite extracurricular activity!
