This is a four 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

The first class will be spent on getting to know the sewing machine: How does it work?
The second, third and fourth class will be spent on ‘one of a kind’ creations. We will sew an apron and a basic tote bag, depending on skill level. This is an opportunity to be creative and have fun while learning to sew!


Materials required will depend on the project.
We recommend:

  1. 1 yard each of two different quilting cottons (washed), plus matching thread.
  2. Tools and notions will be provided in class however if you have a sewing kit you are welcome to bring it along. You can also purchase a JP Knit & Stitch sewing kit.
  3. Sewing machines are provided, but students may bring their own if they prefer.
