Sewing Club for Kids Mondays - January through May 2020 - 12:00-1:30

For kids age 7 and up. Begins January 27th. Ends May 11th.

Class Description: Each student will begin the semester by learning how to thread and use a sewing machine. From there they will learn to sew straight lines, iron seams, cut patterns, use a seam allowance, sew straps, sew and line a tote, make boxed corners, install zippers and buttons, read a pattern, make a patchwork square, room decor, and so much more. We try to finish at least 8-10 projects each semester. Students will work at their own pace but we will cover a lot of ground and have a lot of fun!

1 class per week for 13 weeks (with the exception of holiday weeks and spring break weeks) starting the week of Jan 27 and ending in Mid May (that includes one free make-up day for any students who miss a class). Each class is 1.5 hours long.

Cost: 235.00 for first student, 211.50 for each sibling. Sewing machines and most of the supplies are included (we may have one small project where the student needs to bring their own fabric).

About Mrs. G.: My name is Jona Giammalva and I homeschooled my 5 kids (3 girls and 2 boys) for 18 years. I have been sewing since Jr. High (when they still had Home Ec. classes!) and have written a sewing blog for 10 years. I am a sewing pattern designer and the author of the book The Essential A-Line: Make 17 Flirty Skirts from 1 Basic Pattern published by Stash Publishing.

I opened Make Sewing Studio in the Spring of 2017 in my home (in Ray Ranch near Ray/Higley). My goal is to teach and equip students so they have the skills to create their own projects and even sew and mend their own clothes. From there I want to help build the students’ skillset so they have the knowledge and technique for creating professional finishes (I’ve made a lot of money for my family with my sewing skills while being able to stay home with my children and I want to pass that knowledge on to my students). In my classes your student will learn a lot while having a lot of fun (I’m a task master but we still have fun together while working hard). Please feel free to ask me any questions!
