Kids' Advanced Beginning Sewing Class

Our last kids' class of the summer finished up last Friday.  This advanced beginning class was for young people ages 9-13 who had some sewing experience, and wanted to try projects that were a bit more complex.

The three very talented girls in the class let me peek in and take a few photos of what they were up to.

Maya made a dress, an bright apron, and a pleated skirt.

Black and white prints go with everything!

Here's Anna busy at her machine.

And her nearly finished top.  The waist tie and elasticized neckline keep fitting simple, and the ribbon trim makes it pop!

Anella worked on crafty projects, making herself a cute and practical lunch bag and a reversible oven mitt.  I believe she also made the rick-rack trimmed tunic she's wearing.


I was impressed with how much the students got done in just a week!  If you missed this class, we often repeat it during the winter holiday break, so keep an eye on the Treadle class schedule at:
