Kids & Teens Sewing Club
WEEKLY SEWING SESSIONS, PERFECT TO KEEP LITTLE HANDS BUSY
In this weekly club you will build confidence and work on a variety of sewing projects.
What will you learn?
Join one of the Kids & Teens Sewing Club. At the beginning, we propose projects. They are chosen based on skill level. We mix craft and dressmaking projects that the kids learn a variety of skills. For the advanced sewist, they get to decide what they would like to make.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN MACHINE?
Yes, that is always encouraged since it is best to practice on your own machine. As you know, we have a range of Brother and Bernette sewing machines in the studio. If carrying a sewing machine is too heavy, you are welcome to request a specific machine/model for your kid(s) and we will sit her/him on this machine (subject to availability).
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY KID(S) CAN'T COME DUE TO SICKNESS, HOMEWORK OR TRAVEL?
That's not a problem, you won't loose a session as long as you let us know in advanced. Please let us know at least 2 hours of the class start time, otherwise it will be considered a late cancellation. In the event of a no-show or late cancellation, we will deduct a session from the prepaid set.
DO THE CLUBS RUN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
No, we will break for major holidays such as spring, summer and winter break. We will run classes during the half term break in February and October, as long as there are enough sign ups. If numbers are small, we might merge a few clubs together but would inform you about this in advanced.
I ONLY WANT TO SEND MY KID(S) FOR ONE SESSION.
Most projects take more than one session to finish and we want to give each child enough time to complete each step without being put under pressure. In the past, we also had no-shows and therefore require a little commitment from your end too. Every session requires planning, material purchases and it all costs us money. Please support us by understanding our reasons and we therefore have two different sets of sign ups: 5 or 10 sessions.
