A wonderful way to learn how to sew while making real clothing and accessories. Class ends with a fashion show! New Winter Projects.
Our Fashion Design and Sewing classes for kids 6-12 years old combines all the elements of design such as measuring, cutting fabric, using patterns and sewing machines into one fabulous course culminating in a professional fashion show!
Class begins with an introduction on how to use a sewing machine, our machines are equipped with speed control and finger guards for a safe and fun environment. Students begin their first project during class number one. Throughout the course they learn how to thread the sewing machine, properly cut fabric and use child-friendly patterns to make 4 or more fashionable items during their class.
Each child works with our professional instructors, on their own project at their own pace. Our student/teacher ratio is 6:1 and our studio has ten sewing machines for a class of ten students.
Projects progress in difficulty to build your child's sewing skills and projects change each season so that students can continue to sew with us. We focus on trendy pieces that can be worn in our fashion show by the 'lil designers themselves such as handbags, tops, skirts, pants and dresses.
At the end of the course, students receive two tickets to our Fashion Show where, like a dance-recital for fashion, student walk the runway in their amazing creations. With our raised, light-up runway you'll feel like you're at New York Fashion Week - complete with music, lights and photography - a fab way to see your child grow into a new, lifelong skill.
