Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic handsewing skills:  threading a needle, making a knot, basic straight stitches, securing stitches, fancy stitches that show, hidden stitches, lining up corners, closed seams. Additionally, we may have time to learn a few embroidery stitches, or adding finishing touches like fringe, beads, or lace. The last three weeks are primarily for student to create a free choice project with their new sewing skills,and teacher guidance along the way.
I have been hand sewing since I was eight years old. It used to be my favorite form of sewing. I have avidly sewn many cross stitch and embroidery projects through the years. I now enjoy machine sewing, too. 
Depending on level of difficulty, some time outside class may be required to finish the item. For the chosen free choice sewing project, student is encouraged to work on item independently, and use class time for questions, troubleshooting, trying new things.
two to three types of cotton fabric--old clothes you are willing to repurpose will work

sewing pins (with colorful balls on top) for stablizing fabrics/patterns in place $

($= can be found at Dollar Store. Other items are usually found around the house.) 
Informal assessment of understanding. It is important that student is onscreen, so I can see his or her sewing skills in progress, and actually troubleshoot together as we go.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Use of sewing needles and sharp scissors during these projects is required, and parental supervision may be necessary, depending on age and ability of child.
