a Note For Parents

parents!  by the time you were old enough for mom or grandmother to make your clothes,
mom or Grandma had been practicing her sewing skills for decades 
Build sewing skills with each project
Start with simple projects
Start with simple fabrics
Start with the sewing machine

The Specifics
Fat Quarter or remnants are a smart choice for beginners

No stretchy fabrics until more experienced with their stitching skills

Select "fabric only" child size scissors for cutting fabric only - approximately 6 inches or so. 

Students build supplies as they go...velcro, elastics, pins, buttons, ribbons, and trim, etc. 

Parents should encourage students to sew simple projects for themselves and others. Remember birthdays and holidays

Every sew'er should sew a blanket or quilt.  It's excellent creative practice. 

Students should avoid complicated projects in the beginning, like interpreting paper patterns,  slipcovers for the couch, drapes for the living room, recovering dining room chairs, shortening Dads pants or a cluster of couch pillows.  At this point, student skills may not yet match parent expectations and it will zap the fun out of sewing. 

Doll patterns are targeted toward adult sewing. Very few children under age 12 have the patience to read and understand pattern construction language.  Practice will get them there!

To register your sewing star
