Class Experience

Come explore the fine art of machine sewing in our Sewing Foundation 101 class! This is a beginner sewing class for students ages 7-13 years old. Through a series of sewing and fashion projects, students learn to use the sewing machine and express their individuality through their handmade wearable art.


In our Sewing Foundation/Machine Basics Sewing Class you will learn:

- How to Thread Your Machine

- How To Thread a Bobbin

- How the top thread and bobbin thread work together

- How to use the different stitches on your machine, including buttonholes (If you have them)

- How to adjust your machine tension; when and why you do it

- Which needles to use with which fabrics

- How to sew zippers and add other closure to sewn projects

- Basic pattern making introduction with a focus in connecting math concepts into the design process.


Projects may include: soft sculptures, stuffed animals, zipper pouch/tote and a final project selected by the group from our project options

Creative and fun projects with a wide variety of materials to work with. Great balance between curated and self-directed projects, giving kids flexibility to explore and express themselves through art/making. Bonus: a daily walk and lunch at the park!

My child had a fabulous time at the drawing and painting class! They came home inspired to create, and they have already asked me when they can go back. So glad to have Maker Studio Kids in the neighborhood.

Improvements:

Please continue to reach out to families and publicize your classes! Weekday class times are a bit tough with school times. Maybe consider more weekend classes?

Loved:

The instructor was really fun, nice, and easy to talk to during the camp. Instructions were easy to follow. My daughter thought that the final project was really cool.

Improvements:

Sewing project was a little difficult sewing by hand because it was hard to push the needle through the "leather". But after camp we finished with a sewing machine.
