The Kids introductory sewing class will teach your child how to use a sewing machine.

At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine. It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn. Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

In the Kids sewing class, numbers are limited so each child receive lots of attention and be carefully supervised.

Who is this aimed at?

Beginners aged 8-12. They must be able to place their feet flat on the floor when sitting in a chair 45cm high. If they can't then they will not be able to use the machines' foot control.

What will my child learn?

How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
Practice sewing straight lines, curves and corners
Make a pin cushion
