Lesson Details

Sewing

Levels Taught:
Beginner
Not your mother's home ec class! Sewing is a great foundation for any child who likes to work with their hands. Problem-solving and math skills will reinforced, and your child will be introduced to fractions, measuring, making patterns, and the engineering of textiles. We start with the fundamentals of hand-sewing and work at your child's pace toward machine sewing skills. Your child will make practical and whimsical projects--scaled to their ability--and will feel a sense of accomplishment after each lesson. Your child will be make the design decisions that lead to confident maker skills. I'm a homeschooling mom, afterschool art and animation instructor, costuming hobbyist, and always have a craft I'm working on. I love helping kids gain confidence and build their knowledge and skills at a comfortable pace.

Kids love to learn to Sew with Mrs. Appel, with fun, confidence-building projects!

Sewing Lessons (hand and machine) for kids and Tee Shirt Quilt Lessons.

Sewing--its art and technology--thrill me! I like making traditional art--drawing and painting--but I especially love to work with fabric and paper. I enjoy hand-sewing and machine sewing, papier mache and paper crafts. I spot the art potential in everyday items-- from disposables to items in the hardware store.I love the maker movement, and want to help children see the benefits of making things for themselves and exploring their creativity. I have years of experience working with children in after school programs, churches, plus experience doing production machine and hand sewing. I'm a new grandmother, and I can't wait to be the "crafty grandma"-- meanwhile, let me help your child discover a love of sewing!

MarKay has been wonderful with my 10 year old daughter. She is patient and my daughter has learned quite a bit in just a few lessons which is keeping her excited about each upcoming lesson! I highly recommend her.
