Here at The New York Sewing Center, our love of crafting and sewing began at a very young age, which is why we love to inspire the next generation of fashion designers with our Kids’ Sew class!
This course is a great summer camp (5 day) program for young students to express their creativity & grow their love of sewing through fun seasonal projects that they will be proud to say they made!
We start at a beginner level so everyone can follow along and even replicate their projects at home for family and friends.
During this course you will learn:
· how to properly thread and use a sewing machine
· basic sewing techniques and terminology and how to use a pattern
· hand and machine stitching & seam finishes, appliqué and trim application
Ages 7-10: fashion sketching & mood boards, pencil case, tote bag, drawstring backpack, skirt, shorts or summer dress of choice.
Ages 11-14: fashion sketching & mood boards, tote bag, dress, top or skirt of choice from a commercial pattern. Students will learn to use the machine and a commercial sewing pattern in this class.
