This is a three session sewing group for ages 8-11.  Sewing ability can range from no sewing experience to basic skills. Students will learn the following while working on a simple project during each class:

  • The basics of using a sewing machine
  • How to iron as part of the sewing process.
  • How to cut and work with fabric, add embellishment or sew a button

This session we will be sewing cloud pillows! The first class will be spent on getting to know the sewing machine: How does it work? The second and third class will be spent on ‘one of a kind’ cloud pillow creations. This is an opportunity to be creative and have fun while learning to sew!

  • In addition to the fabric please also purchase some felt pieces that can be cut up to make embellishments such as faces, hearts/flowers/sun, anything they would like to sew onto the front of the pillow.
