Tweens Beginning Machine Sewing - Ages 8 and up

Tweens Beginning Machine Sewing - Ages 8 and up

This class is geared toward children 8-14 that are new to machine sewing or that need a refresher. All the basics are covered. Use of Granary Sewing machines and tools during class time, and all materials are included in the fee. Children will begin with a basic sewing machine tutorial and then be guided through making 3 progressively more complicated projects that build basic skills. The projects are suitable for (and we have fabric for) all genders and ages.

In addition to excellent guidance and instruction, children will receive a project box of their own, a basic sewing tool kit, and materials to make a pillowcase, a drawstring bag, and a small wallet.

During class they will learn sewing machine basics; safety, how-to thread the machine, how to sew straight lines. They will learn how-to read a basic pattern, cut out pattern pieces, pin pattern pieces to fabric and cut out, as well as finishing techniques including making a casing and hemming.

Since students work at their own pace, some may not completely finish all their projects during class time, but they can take their project patterns and materials home with their sewing tool kit. They will need sharp fabric scissors and a sewing machine to finish the projects at home.

CLASS TIMES: Meets for either five consecutive days, for 3 hours a day OR 6 weeks for 2-1/2 hours after school. Includes a 15-minute snack break. Bring a snack and a drink. If your child tends to get cold, please send them with a sweater. 

Children are supervised at all times. Class sizes vary from 4-14 students. We use standard adult tools and some are sharp. Children will receive a pair of pointed, sharp thread-snips in their sewing tool kit in addition to pins and needles. 

Parents cannot attend class or wait inside the shop for kids in class. If a child is attending a morning and afternoon class they cannot stay in the shop between classes.

Children may attend multiple sessions of this class.
