Kids Private Lessons

Private Sewing Lessons

on the porch

We are offering outdoor private lessons at our student's homes providing there is a suitable covered area with access to electricity. A Sew Happy instructor will come to your home and teach 1 - 4 people hand or machine sewing. Please understand that we have spent time considering safety and social distancing and we feel that 4 students is the maximum for sewing activities.

ALL CAMPERS AND INSTRUCTOR MUST WEAR MASKS AT ALL TIMES (NO EXCEPTIONS)

Every new student needs to take our Introductory Lesson in order to learn about safety, anatomy and threading the machine. The project is a simple felt pouch and students learn about straight stitch, back stitch, zigzag stitch, seam allowances, sewing curves and corners and sewing on a button.

 

The Introductory Lesson can either be a stand alone lesson or part of the "6 Pack For Beginners" which we highly recommend as it is a great introduction to machine sewing and our easy to use, speed controlled machines make it easy for young sewers to develop good sewing habits as they learn a wonderful life skill.

Students choosing stand alone projects must complete the Introductory Lesson and the pre-requisites listed with each project.

Children must be 6 years old or above.

Call (917) 885 7716 or email us to find out more about booking a private lesson.

We also have backyard camps - click here!
