This is a December four-week workshop for sewing beginners (ages 8-12). Students will learn the basics of machine and hand sewing by completing at least 2 projects (one larger one, and an accessory) just in time for holiday gifting! The class is taught by crafting and sewing enthusiast Alexandra Alquati, a Bay-Area educator with 15 years of experience teaching.

The focus of the class is learning while doing, having a product that they feel proud of, and having FUN! Students will get to choose projects that they will complete on a sewing machine and by hand.

All materials and snacks provided, but students can also bring:

  • scissors

  • measuring tape or ruler

  • scraps of fabric

  • pin cushions

  • old clothes they would like to repurpose

  • sewing machine (if they have one)*there will be sewing machines available at the Studio

Larger projects include: a tote bag with lining and cool details, a fleece scarf with hand pockets, a sleeping mat with pillow and a velcro fastener (for sleepovers), a gathered skirt, composition notebook cover (composition book included!), pencil bag, bundting decor for their room or to gift, a superhero cape, or even bring your hoodie to turn into a dino-hoodie!
