Children must already have done an introductory sewing class to learn how to use a sewing machine. Ideally they will have completed the Kids Introductory Sewing Class, and be confident using a machine.

What will my child learn?

>cutting fabrics using a pattern,
>further sewing practice
>working with felt
>sewing on buttons
>how to stuff soft toys

Classes are small so children are carefully supervised and there's lots of individual assistance.
