Sewing is so great for your young child’s motor skills and leads to all sorts of other fun artistic activities! In this class designed for beginners basic hand sewing techniques will be taught through a series of fun projects. The students will progress from small pillows to simple stuffed animals to designing some clothes for a favourite teddy or doll. It is important to learn these basics so that perhaps they can sign up for classes at our neighbours, Sew Be It Studio, when they are eight!
