Hand Embroidery for Children

About Hand Embroidery for Children

Hand Embroidery is a lovely creative activity for children to learn. In this sewing class for ages 8-12, we’ll be making a felt heart. This is a lovely school holiday activity for children. Younger children will be considered but you must let me know their age in advance for safety and insurance reasons. Since sewing machines are not used in this class, the usual height requirement doesn't apply.

I learned to sew as a very young child. My earliest memories involve playing with fabric scraps. Sewing develops manual dexterity and excellent hand/eye coordination. It also stimulates a child’s imagination and creativity.

What will my child learn?

- some common hand embroidery stitches
- combining felt and other fabrics to make a heart-shaped key chain charm.
- decorating it with ribbons and buttons

Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hand Embroidery for Children are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
