Kids Really Can Sew!

If you have any doubt that kids can learn to sew on a sewing machine, let me set your mind at ease.  I questioned it my self too in the beginning.  But kids can sew & craft & quilt & design their own clothes, and they do a great job at it, even as young as six years old.  Itís funny that I would even question it, since I began sewing at such an early age. If you are interested in teaching kids to sew, it is a very rewarding job.  Here is more information on teaching sewing.


Sewing and crafting builds self-esteem.  Children learn the value of completing a project and they gain confidence in them selves.  Sewing is an individual art allowing one to go at ones own pace and allowing one to choose color, texture, and creativity to each project.  That makes each project special and unique, a one of a kind.  As long as a child is taught with positive reinforcements they will enjoy learning.  There are no mistakes, only lessons learned.
Children are great listeners and learners if you make it fun and appealing to them. Itís been shown that a childís creative ability is best developed between the ages of 6-12.  The art of sewing helps provide this creative spark.



Here is a 6 year old Alyssa intensely hand sewing the opening of her purple pieced star pillow.  Behind her is 9 year old Kelly finishing up her sewing bag which was her first project.

Here is Allison, Jaclyn, Emily, Samantha, and Courtney. It was by chance that these 5 girls were in the same week of camp together.  They were friends and young in age, but very eager and active in their sewing skills.  They accomplished so much in one week. What a great group!


I think the best thing about sewing (besides how much fun it is) is that each student works at their own pace, on their own project, using their own creative choices.  From left to right is Alyssa and Christina who made a bunny holding a carrot in a basket.  Next is Jacqueline who in her own creative mind wanted to make an "Eagles quilt"  GO EAGLES!  Then her sister Kelly had her first class and she made her sewing bag.  On the right is one of my youngest students Alyssa who is proudly showing her star pillow.

Here is Miss Jaqi helping little Alyssa (my youngest student) iron one of her projects. Sometimes we just have to improvise by using chairs to stand on and phone books to sit on...
