Prerequisites for Kids Classes:

  • We keep our kids classes small. This ensures that each child gets all the help and attention they need. Please make sure that your child understands that this is a class that will require their attention and maturity. We will be using tools that can hurt ourselves and our friends if we aren't careful.
  • Be a kid! (8-12 years of age)
  • No sewing experience required for the Kids Can Sew classes.  
  • For the Kids Can Sew 2.0 classes, kids should be ages 10-16 and have taken several classes with us already, or be confident and proficient with threading a sewing machine, sewing in a straight line, and cutting fabric.
  • All fabric and supplies can be purchased in store or provided by yourself. It is recommended that all fabric is washed prior to the course date.
  • Minimum registration is 3 students. Maximum is 5 students.
