Class Experience

To hand sew a running stitch 
To sew on a button 
To measure and cut accurately
To complete 2-3 small hand sewing projects
Besides being a lifelong academic teacher, I am also a lifelong sewist. I learned to sew from my mother when I was just a small girl, making doll clothes from dress scraps. Since I became accomplished at quilting, as well as making my own clothes. Sewing is relaxing and  a creative outlet for me, that  I want to and enjoy sharing with others. 
Homework will be assignments to practice skills learned in each class so that the children can begin to gain control and some level of proficiency in preparation for their projects. 
Please gather all materials prior to each class so that we do not have to wait for students to gather materials. Promptness is necessary as each class is very busy, and it is easy to fall behind if you are late to class. 
Learner Supplies 1. Sewing kit- A box or basket to hold sewing utensils. It could be a shoe box or a fancy sewing box. Scissors- make sure you get good scissors, I recommend Fiskars since they are not high dollar but cut well. You need larger pair for cutting cloth and a smaller pair for snipping threads. Sewing thread-Black and white, a small spool is fine. Sewing needles. A chalk marking pencil. A twelve-inch ruler. A sewing measuring tape. Straight pins. A needle threader (it often comes in a packet of needles). A glue stick. A pin cushion. 2. Sewing on felt- Running stitch. Black or white felt square - use contrasting thread for this project. 3. Sewing cutting and measuring on cotton fabric. 1 fat quarter of cotton fabric ( 9” x 18“ ) You can usually buy these at any Walmart or craft store. They can also be ordered online. If you have a relative who sews, any large cotton fabric scrap will do. We will also use this piece for a following week’s scrunchie project. Sewing needle, thread, scissors from the sewing kit. 4. Making a pouch – sewing on a button. A 9 x 12 sheet of felt – any color you like. Scissors, needle, thread to match the felt fabric, ruler, and a button. 5. Making a pillow- A 1/2 yard of cotton fabric. Not too heavy weight. Do not use an upholstery type fabric. Scissors, needle, thread to match the fabric, ruler, and a large button. Fiberfill to stuff the pillow. 6. Possible third project: Scrunchie- Any scrap fabrics at least 12 x 12 inches- You can even cut up old clothing into sections for your child to use for this class, 1/4 inch elastic, Scissors, measuring tape, pencils from the sewing kit.
Class participation and acquisition of the stated skills are used as the assessment tool for this class. Keep in mind each child will make progress at his or her own rate and any progress is worth celebrating! 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Some children may need some assistance from an adult or older sibling when learning to cut and thread a needled. All attempts will be made to demonstrate these skills so that this is unnecessary, but all children learn differently!  Some may need a little help.  You may want to supervise any use of a hot iron. I will not require kids to use one during class without an adult present.
