Our ten year old daughter loves to sew! She’s been sewing for two years now and though I do sew, I’m no expert so I thought I’d share how we have fueled this passion for our daughter.
After we discovered that she had an innate skill with a sewing machine (through her grandmother), we had the good fortune of having two sewing class offerings at our homeschool co-op which we certainly took advantage of that season. Since then she has been sewing various projects at home and we have been sending her to a refashioning, cooperative sewing classroom for a few sessions/events throughout the year as time and finances allow.
I’ve learned a few things along the way from which I think others can learn.
