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
- 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!

What a treat! My daughter completed her Matchbox Mouse over half term and loved it. The video instructions were super and the level was pitched really well. She was able to make progress quickly and she really enjoyed the process. We have already decided on her next Sewcial Circle project!
Ordered matchbox mouse kits for my children, and so pleased I did! The kits arrived beautifully packaged with everything we needed, and both my children were really excited to make their mice. The videos were really clear and easy to follow. Although the recommended age is from 7, I did order one for my 5 1/2 year old because I knew he would want to make what his sister was making. I expected I would have to help him, but he coped really well and both children loved it and are thrilled with their finished mice. We also loved the ideas for other things to make at the end and they have spent the afternoon using their imaginations to make other things for their mice.
My 9 year old had a great time. The workshop was paced well and she finished the whole thing in the 1 ½ hours. The kit supplied was excellent quality. She is now so proud of herself and, true praise indeed, ''I didn't get bored once!''
We did our class on catch up (delay's with royal mail) and I have to say my 6 year old loved it :) Plenty of materials to complete the project and simple enough for her to do on her own (with the exception of me threading the needle for her). We ended up doing the project in two sittings as we'd had a busy week. However, it would have been easy to do it in the time scale, which was well paced and not too fast. I would definitely have another go at a workshop like this again. For me, I will have a nice keepsake for her memory box once she decides she is too big for her little friend she made :)
Your mice workshop last Saturday was genuinely the highlight of the weekend for my 3 girls (age 5, 10 and 12) and me! Gorgeous little kits with high quality materials arrived well in advance, the tech worked perfectly and your live workshop was super easy to follow, fun and interactive. Have been loving seeing the little mice pop up around my house all week. Thank you Katie! We will definitely be signing up for any more kids sewing workshops that you host.
