Los Angeles 6-Week Course | Beginner Sewing for Kids
NEXT SESSION STARTS WEEK COMMENCING APRIL 22nd - Registration OPEN NOW!
The Mood U 6-Week Beginner Sewing Course for Children (ages 8-15) is a set of six (6) consecutive weekly in-store classes designed to teach the fundamentals of sewing by creating a simple bag from start to finish!
Students will learn basic home-sewing machine operating skills, pattern layout, fabric cutting, sewing construction, and finishing techniques. This class is a perfect opportunity for children to realize their sewing dreams and enjoy the creative process.
The first sewing project is our popular Mood U Tote Bag. Each week we focus on a different stage of the project, and by the end of the 6-week session students will have completed their own customized Mood U Tote Bag from start to finish. From this single project you will have built a solid foundation of sewing skills and techniques to prepare you for our intermediate sewing class for children where you will learn the basics of garment construction.
