Sewciety Kids is our comprehensive sewing program for kids ages 7 to 12.  It is a skill-building program that progresses in difficulty as students advance.  Students are exposed to everything the world of sewing has to offer, including quilting, garment sewing, applique, embroidery, bag-making, and more!  The program consists of four levels:

Level 1:  Beginners
Level 2:  Advanced Beginners
Level 3:  Intermediate 1
Level 4:  Intermediate 2

Each level is a school-year long curriculum, broken up into 6-week sessions.  Students can enter and exit the program at any time!

In each 6-week session, students typically complete one craft sewing project and one wearable project.  No project is repeated throughout the course of the curriculum.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If my child has no sewing experience, how can I get him/her started?
A: First, register for a Beginner Workshop. This is a 2-hour class that typically is held on Saturday mornings.  If your child is 9 and up, they can register for the Tween Beginner Workshop.  If they are 7, or 8 they must attend a Parent/Child class with a parent.  Once they've taken the Beginner Workshop they can register for any after-school course, Saturday course, or camp.

Q:  My child has some sewing machine experience.  Does he/she still need the beginner workshop?
 A:  If your child already knows how to wind a bobbin and thread the machine, then no.  Otherwise they should take the beginner workshop. 

Q:  My child will miss one of the classes in his/her course.  Can I schedule a make-up?
A:  Yes.  Many times we can get the child caught up so that they complete their project in the remaining classes; but If not, you may call to schedule a make-up class.

Q:  I signed up for a class but cannot attend due to an unexpected conflict.  Can I get a refund?
A:  If you cannot attend the class you are registered for, we are happy to offer you a credit for another class.  Refunds are provided for classes ONLY if the class is full and there is a waiting list, AND your spot is filled by someone on the waiting list.
