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 9 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

All classes will be up in the MISS MARY SHOP soon.  Yes, I have a Working With Children check.

ABSOLUTE BEGINNER CLASS – SEWING MACHINES

The Miss Mary signature class to get your young ones sewing.  We learn how to use the sewing machine, machine safety, how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine, sew straight lines, pivot & reverse stitch.  Children then learn step by step how to make their own bunting.  This project is brilliant as it is repetitive and something they can continue making at home in their own time.  Bring your own machine or hire one here for $10.
