Kid's 4 Week Classes
Kid's 4 Week Classes
Kids’ Foundations, 4 weeks long
These new four week classes are a great introduction to sewing, without the full semester commitment! Each session has different projects, all aimed at beginners, so if you little sewist wants to continue taking classes, there are always new projects to keep learning with!
Kids ages 7-11 will learn how to safely use a sewing machine, how to cut accurately, and how to finish their projects nicely so they last a long time. There is always room for creativity within these classes too! Materials are all included.
