Youth Learn To Sew Series - Level 3

This is a kid-friendly, gender-neutral program that provides the necessary foundation in basic sewing skills and equipment usage.  The program is designed to keep the participants engaged through a series of fun & easy-to-complete projects. 

This is the 3rd level consisting of four classes.

Sewing machines and all project materials included!  Students will have the opportunity to pick out their fabric for the various projects:
Class 1: Make a lined tote bag!
Class 2: Learn to make a drawstring backpack
Class 3: Sewing curves and making straps while constructing a lined Apron
Class 4: Make a zippered pouch

The course is offered for ages 7 through 13 and is limited to 4 participants.  Please note that 15 minutes is scheduled at the start and finish of each class for settling in (hanging up coats, chatting, checking out the shop, visiting with Maggie the staff dog) and workspace prep/clean-up!

If the participant has a sewing machine please bring it to become familiar with it - make sure the machine has been recently serviced and in good working order; otherwise, sewing machines are supplied.
A sewing kit will be required, consisting of:
  • thread snips/scissors
  • seam ripper
  • straight pins
  • Fabric marker & chalk
  • sewing gauge
  • 1 spool of thread in a neutral colour
Most of these items are available in our shop & students will receive a 15% discount on all purchases related to their class. If you'd like to make this process even easier, click the CLASS + MATERIALS Option and we will have a kit prepared for them!
