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). If you have previously bought a course with us, use this link to log-in after purchase to find your new course in your course library.
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!

My daughter and group of friends enjoyed this beautiful kit as part of a 9th birthday party (including a 7 year old sibling). They didn't finish it during the party - but it is easy to pack everything back into the box and send link for them to finish at home. Everything you need is in the pretty box and girls were so excited to open all the little parcels.
The final result is adorable, each owl's expression completely different!
I would recommend this for a party at home or playdate or just a lovely calming holiday activity.
