Kids (8-11years)

We love introducing kids and teens to the world of sewing! It strengthens focus, fine motor skills, and hand-eye co-ordination. It is also creative, exciting and empowering to create an item from scratch that you would normally buy in a store.

We have very friendly sewing machines ( Janome 625E’s to be exact) that make learning to sew FUN!

Kids process information differently at various age groups and we’ve found that certain age groups respond better to specific teaching stylers.

Kids Class dates are currently scheduled by request only. Please email us at info@themakeden.com if you have a group of between 3-6 students and would like to book a class.
