The Projects

 

Bookmark - Each Girl Scout chooses a bookmark design (we have 10 designs)

Skills Learned:

  1. How to thread a needle

  2. How to use a needle threader

  3. Tying a knot

  4. Straight stitch

  5. Lock stitch

  6. Whip stitch

 

The printed stitch lines and markings on the back of the bookmarks make it easy for beginners to learn the basics of sewing. Once the girls have mastered these basic skills they stitch the front and back of the bookmark together, using a whipstitch. 

 

Optional: Students are welcome to stitch a badge on to the bookmark.

Schedule

Our friendly and knowledgeable instructors will guide your Girl Scout group through a 90 minute class which will go like this:

  • First 15 minutes - Intro & Ice-breaker 

The instructor will introduce themselves and explain the goals for the class. We will ask each Girl Scout to introduce herself and tell us if she has any sewing experience.

  • Next 60 minutes - How to sew 

 

Our instructors will guide the girls through cutting the bookmark, threading a needle, tying a knot, stitching and lock stitch. They should complete the bookmark during this time.

  • Last 15 minutes - Clean up/ Show & Tell/ Q&A

Students will clean up their work area and to put all sharp pins, needles and scissors away safely. There will be a short "Show & Tell" with each student showing her projects. We will have a short Q & A session where the students may ask our instructors any sewing related questions.
