How does this online sewing class work?
This online course takes place on Thinkific. You'll receive log-in details immediately after purchase if this is your first course with us. If you have previously bought a course with us, use this link to log-in after purchase to find your new course.
It is well-paced, but you can pause and rewind if you need to. Work through the project at your own pace.
Tips for parents:
- Set a laptop up on a table, where your child can sit and watch
- Lay everything out on the table before you begin
- Enjoy a cuppa before you begin so you can lend a hand if the thread gets tangled
- One thing I've learned from years of teaching kids to sew is that perfection doesn't matter. If there's a knot, I just tuck it inside and keep going.
- Encourage them to try it first before stepping in
Now let's get stuck into this project together, see you in the course!
I bought this for my 11 year old daughter. She was very excited to receive the box of materials and very quickly set up the iPad to watch the class. It was perfect because she could pause it when needed and go back over things. She found it easy to follow and did it on her own. She was very pleased with the finished result
