Suitable for: Children aged 8-12. Beginner level
This Kids Sewing Course level 1 will teach your child to use a sewing machine, safely and confidently. And they will make some easy sewing projects like bunting and a tote bag.
At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine. It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn. Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.
Because they’re having such a great time, they don’t actually realise how many valuable sewing skills they are learning which will stay with them for life.
