Frequently asked questions
My student is 8 years old, could I enroll her or him?
Teaching ages 9+ has to do with safety. In our experience, a child younger than 9 years old generally has difficulty with pinning fabric, using scissors, working with patterns, and have shorter spans of concentration. Since we work with a sewing machine, sharp objects such as scissors and pins, safety is important. Also, these are group lessons and each student needs to be able to work independently while a teacher is helping another student.
Why does my student need to complete the first three beginner projects?
The three beginner projects are a tried and true way to learn. Each project builds skills that helps the student understand the basics for all future sewing projects and not become frustrated. Having fun while learning to sew is an important component so that our students also build confidence along the way.
My child is homeschooled, can we use a PO for camps too?
Yes! As long as your charter school approves it.
Do you teach adults?
Our studio is unique because we specialize in teaching kids. All of our classes are group lessons for ages 9-17.
