NEW!! KIDS SEWING CLASSES Ages 8-10 & 11-13 (NEW, UPPER EAST SIDE LOCATION)
Sew New York now offers small private classes for 1-2 children, ages 8-10 &11-13. Kids have a great time learning how to sew FUN projects. For more information you can read the class description and class times we are offering for Beginner I and Beginner II levels.
We now have two locations for the kids classes, our main location in Brooklyn Heights on Livingston Street and our new location on the Upper East Side, at 92nd Street and 2nd Avenue.
DESCRIPTION OF CLASSES: Each session for Beginner I & Beginner II consists of 6 classes and the classes are 1 1/2 hr.
BEGINNER'S I: Appropriate for ages 8-10. This class is designed for the new beginner. In this series the student will learn how to use the sewing machine, how to hand stitch, they'll learn to pin, cut and baste fabric. Sewing will teach them hand and eye coordination, as well as hand dexterity. The projects are all FUN and simple. For example some of the projects they get to sew are: a cute pin cushion, during the winter months they get to make a pair of mittens, there is a choice of two different tote bags and more. You can view some of these creations by looking at the rotating photo's to the right side of this page.
BEGINNER'S II: Appropriate for ages 8-10. This class is a bit more advanced. The student now knows how to use the sewing machine and can sew by hand. So in this series the projects are a bit more advanced and take a bit more time. They will get to sew lounge pajamas, make an apron and perhaps a simple skirt. You can see an example of the skirt on the homepage, look for the little girl in the striped skirt, click on the thumbnail to view the whole image.
