We're sorry, but this sub-activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, December 20, 2016.
Studies have shown that children between the ages of 6 and 12 are naturally interested in and benefit greatly from learning to sew. Turning 2-dimensional pieces of fabric into 3-dimensional objects can initially be daunting but learning sewing techniques in a considered way can provide the tools and inspiration to make the journey worthwhile and enjoyable. We?ll learn about basic stitching techniques (both by hand and with the machine), the nature of various fabrics and other materials and we?ll look a bit at fashion trends old and new to explore our own sensibilities and to demonstrate the scope of possibilities for stretching ones imagination.
