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.

About MarKay A.

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

Sewing--its art and technology--thrill me! Let me help your child discover a love of hand- and machine-sewing! In the process, your child will:

--learn a new skill
--improve hand-eye coordination
--exercise creative problem-solving
--make design decisions
--reinforce math skills
--learn interesting facts about textile history, science and engineering

Lessons are tailored for your child's skills and interests. We begin with hand-sewing, then progress to the sewing machine when your child is ready. I teach fun projects that are designed to keep your child's attention, and are usually completed during that session. You don't need to provide any materials, tools or equipment to begin, until your child is ready to tackle a larger project.

About Mrs. Appel (yep, it's pronounced just like the fruit!): I've been teaching sewing to kids since 2011. I have also taught drawing, animation and science in elementary after-school programs and drawing/painting and maker skills at a hybrid middle-/high school. If something can be made, I can make it understandable and fun to learn!

Ms. Markay was absolutely wonderful dealing with me and my first time sewing lesson! I made something that I never thought I could make before. I’m so ready for my next lesson!

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.
