Sewing (and Other Crafts) for Kids!
Sewing and Other Crafts for Kids! K-5th Grade - includes Sewing, Beading, Weaving and Knitting.
Kids can sew too! Young crafters will quickly be sewing up colorful pillows, potholders, dolls, blankets, and more. Learn the basics and fun of sewing and crafting each week then show what you've made for our end of semester recital.
Students learn how to make smart fabric choices, and use basic sewing tools. Kid-friendly projects include clothes to bags to accessories and more with step-by-step instructions for the creation of each. As the students improve more complex projects occur.
These kid-tested projects give plenty of encouragement and helpful tips, little sewers develop their skills while sparking a passion that will last a lifetime!
