Kids Classes

Sewing is a life skill that teaches patience, dexterity, fine motor skills, concentration and creativity.

I only wish that every child boy and girl take the time to learn even the most basic of skills.  Lets not throw out that shirt because its lost its button or take it to grandmas to get fixed, lets simply sew it on in a few minutes.

Hand Sewing is an essential skill to learn and is a great idea to master before tackling a sewing machine.  Children can hand sew anywhere at anytime.  Its a fabulous activity for the school holidays, a cold winters day or just for some down time any day of the week.   It is something they can keep going back to with no rush to finish and minimal mess!

Miss Mary offers classes for children from the age of 5 years.  With 8 years of teaching children to sew, the program has been structured and levelled for the absolute beginner through to an intermediate sewer.

Each class is created so that essential skills are covered gradually with particular projects so it will allow them to master and perfect their sewing along the way and become legendary little sewers.

With this program all ages are welcome into the one class.  Please choose based on their level.

How to Book…please email me kelly@missmary.com.au with your child’s name and class preference.  You are welcome to ask me any questions too 🙂

Tuesday, 17th April   KIDS SEWING GROUP  1pm – 4pm

A new class to the series…as I have many regular children attending classes every holidays this class will enable your child to work at their own level, working on the items that are of interest to them.   Some projects will take longer than the standard 3 hour class, this way your child will learn patience, partake in all the necessary skills associated with dressmaking and feel the joy of working towards something.   I will offer some suggestions and consult with you all individually before the class and choose something based on your child’s level and things they should work towards & practise.  Miss Mary Kits of all sorts will be available to you, so you don’t need to storm the aisles of the fabric stores, otherwise looking for your own fabrics and patterns are also welcome.

The cost of these group classes is $45 per session
