About This Class


In this mini workshop, I'll teach your child  sewing machine safety and then how to control the speed of the machine to ensure accurate sewing. We will finish up the workshop by making a bookmark! The perfect project to encourage summer reading. 

I am including several practice sheets and a template for the bookmark. 

Don't worry if your child has never used a sewing machine before, I am going to take each step slowly and make learning how to sew not only easy but fun. 

This workshop does include some videos from my new Online Summer Sewing camp For kids

What a fun way to teach a child how to sew.
Perfect timing! My daughter has been begging to learn how to sew. I just watched the videos and will begin my daughter on them in the morning.
