KID SEWING • Sewing Machine Series, September 6-November 8 (3-5 pm) Wednesdays$250.00
This is a sewing series we created for the budding sewer (ages 8+). In this series, kids will learn to use various features of sewing machines (either their own machine or one of Cattywampus's). Each week's class will build upon the skills learned in the previous class - making the classes fun, challenging, and good practice. The exact projects made will be geared toward the group's interests and skill level. Some of the projects that they might make include: book marks, drawstring bag with pocket, quilted zipper pouch, decorative pillow with appliqué, pants with elastic.
