The kids love to show off the creative projects they've made.
Come and cheer them on!
We teach our classes in a non-competitive way to encourage learning at each students own pace. We want our classes to be fun to learn. Our classes are taught in an individual manner, as each student is working on their own project, at their own pace, including how to fix mistakes, and learn from them.
We supply the machines, pins, scissors - all the tools needed to make projects. We have fabrics, kits, thread, etc. available for sale, OR you can bring your own.
The Associated Press writes "sewing stimulates creativity" "Children who know how to sew are likely to have an edge the high-tech economy of the future" says the Home Sewing Association. Activities like sewing and problem - solving skills, according to clinical study commissioned by the H.S.A, stimulates creativity. But kids who spend their free time playing with handheld computer games or watching television, do not.
The study involved 100 students between ages of 8 to 12 and was designed by Dr. Robert Reiner of NewYork University psychiatry department. Sewing's choices of color selection, fabric options, design andproportion help stimulate and focus creative energy and buildself - esteem, according to the study.
Our methods build creativity, self-esteem & reduce stress, while developing patience & perseverance; enhancing problem-solving and other important life skills. Students experience a sense of accomplishment with each finished project, while improving hand/eye co-ordination & other fine motor skills.
Sewing allows people to express themselves and have FUN!! A skill that lasts a lifetime!
There are no mistakes, only lessons to be learned!
We also do Monograms, Custom Embroidery & Digitizing for all your needs.
