How does this online sewing class work?
This online course is hosted by Thinkific. If this is your first course purchase with us, you'll receive log-in details immediately after purchase (check your spam if it's not in your inbox).

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
- Put a piece of A4 paper on the table to protect it from glue
- 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!
