If you have never taken a sewing class at Silk Road Textiles, this class is REQUIRED before taking any other kids' or teens' sewing classes. In this introductory session, you will learn to use and care for a sewing machine. Covered topics include properly threading the needle, winding a bobbin, sewing a straight line, selecting stitch patterns, and good sewing habits. During the first class we will all make pincushions that can be used throughout other sewing classes. Then, we will hone our skills by making the reversible messenger bag project found in A Kid's Guide To Sewing by Sophie Kerr.
You are welcome to bring your machine from home or use one of ours - just let us know when you register which you'd prefer. All class supplies must be purchased at Silk Road Textiles.
Required Reading: Most of the projects in our kids' entry level sewing classes come from A Kid's Guide To Sewing by Sophie Kerr. If you do not already own a copy of this book, you will need to purchase one to participate in our classes.
