Free Kids Pillowcase Class

Saturday, Paula and I had a fun afternoon teaching two children how to make a pillowcase. The class was open free of charge to any child between the ages of 10 and 14. We deliberately limit the size of the class so we can provide one-on-one instruction to each child. We will definitely be offering more kids classes in the future.
We started by letting them select the three fabrics for their project. The kids had never sewn on a sewing machine before, so we set the machines on what Paula calls "Turtle Speed" for their first attempt. As the afternoon progressed, and they gained a bit more confidence, we let them increase their speed.
A. finished his first and was eager to sign up for another project. He did a great job with his pillowcase.
F. was so proud of her pillowcase. And we are proud of her.

Both of them did a fantastic job. I hope to see both of them in future classes.

The next class we have scheduled is August 21. It's another Shopping Bag class. Remember, take the class, make the bag and bring it back with you each time you shop at Sew What. When you bring in the bag, you are helping us in our efforts to Go Green, and we will reward you by taking 10% off your purchase of fabric, patterns and books. Space is limited, so sign up early. Cost of the class is $25.00 and that includes your choice of fabrics for the bag.
