Kids Sew Quilts

20190730_153359.jpg At the second day of our Sewing Camp the kids finished their Rag Quilts.  They chose their fabrics on Monday and started sewing and yesterday they finished them.  They were so proud of their work….as they should be!  They learned to choose fabrics, how to sew a pillow and a quilt, how to sew by hand with needle and thread and how to use  machines.  They even got to try a 1946 Featherweight.  And when I was asked if I bought it new I had to laugh.  Kids!!!

Lincoln and Charlotte

 

Back in May I shared a post about Lincoln and Charlotte.  You can see it here.  Lincoln loves her and it brightens his day when he gets to see her.  Last night she came to art class with her mom and she wanted to paint a portrait of Lincoln.  She sketched him and then went to work painting.  She captured him beautifully.  It’s so much fun to see the two of them together.  Super sweet!

Kids Should Learn to Sew

machineThis year for the first time we are offering a “Sewing Camp” for Kids at The Studio on Monday and Tuesday, July 29-30.  I learned to sew when I was very young.  My grandmothers and mom taught me first and then when I was in school my Home Economics teacher took me to the next level.  This is something that I have used my entire life and is a skill that all kids, girls and boys, should learn.  Why you might ask?  Sewing not only helps you to produce something useful and creative but it teaches other skills too….like math skills, problem solving, self-control, how to focus as well as patience.  (That last one I might have missed.  LOL)  If you have a young person, ages 7+, we have a great two day session planned.  Click here to register.
