Saturday Stitches is our sewing program for total beginners ages 8-12, that runs for 6 weeks. Each week will involve review in order for your child to solidify what they have learned. They get to choose fun projects to build their skills on.

Prerequisite: 

No previous experience or machine required.

If your child has already taken this program they can choose new projects to keep challenging themselves or transfer into Make Club on Tuesday afternoons.

**We recommend taking this course at least twice before transferring into Make Club.

Week 5-6:
  • Choose your own adventure - Take everything you've learned over the last few weeks and apply them to a bigger project of your choice! We have patterns, books and samples galore to inspire your kid. 

What We Provide:

  • Equipment: sewing machines and all tools
  • We keep a wide range of project samples, books (including our Imagination Book) and sewing patterns on hand to be as flexible as possible allowing kids to be self directed in their sewing!

  • Materials for small projects will be provided but for bigger projects such as simple clothing projects you will need to supply your own fabrics. 
  • We offer a 20% student discount on all your supplies or tools purchased during the program! 

What You Provide:

  • Sewing machine (optional): we highly encourage your child to bring their own sewing machine, if they have one. Don't forget to pack the manual, foot pedal & power cord!
  • Snacks & Refreshments: We encourage you to send snacks and refreshments as it’s much easier to be creative when you have fuel for the brain!
