Welcome to our Fall 2023 Beginner Homeschool Sewing classes! Our studio has a long history of success with our beginner classes and we’re happy to have you join the fun. The Beginner Homeschool Series is a set of classes that we've designed for kids who want to learn how to sew and who have little or no previous sewing experience. In attending all of these lessons, kids will learn how to operate a sewing machine safely and acquire the necessary skills to sew a wide range of projects. Each class is project-based, meaning that kids will learn a new skill in every class and then make a project during the same lesson. By the end of this series, the student should be able to navigate independently through any beginner/advanced beginner series that we offer here at Sew Sew Studio or be able to take off on their own with a good foundation. We will offer one make up day for any classes missed on Nov 28.
