KID’S SEWING MACHINE 101 • 8-13 Year Old Intro to Sewing Class, July 6 (1-4 pm) Friday$45.00
This class is for kids ages 8-13 years old who are interested in learning to sew. Kids will get to know the basic functions of a sewing machine and complete a simple, lovely, tote bag in the process. Kids are welcome to bring a machine or use one of ours ($10 rental fee). If you own a machine, we recommend learning on that one so that everything is really familiar for continued sewing at home. So dust off that sewing machine or get a new one and let's get them stitching! By the end of class, the kids will be ready to take any of our Beginner Sewing classes.
