Three Little Birds Sewing Co.
Kids Sewing Series (4 week series)
Introducing our new Kids Sewing Series! Designed for children ages 8-14, this series will give students the confidence and skills to learn to sew on their own. All skill levels are welcome and we adjust each project to their skill level. Students will complete 3 projects (a drawstring bag, a pillowcase, and pajama pants) during this 4 week course and learn a variety of techniques.
Each class is roughly 1.5 hours.
Class dates are:
Meets on the following Sundays: March 10th, 24th, April 7th and 14th. Class starts at 3pm. Please note the dates are every other week, except for the last date in order to avoid the Easter holiday.
Can't make one of the sessions? Shoot us an e-mail, we're happy to help accommodate your schedule. If your child has attended a previous session, we will work with them on different project. In such case, material costs/needs may be different.
Please see below for required materials.
