Mother & Child Sewing Series *(M&C)
A NEW series designed as a special time for mom's and their children to sew together! It's up to you to decide whether you would like to sew one project together or sew alongside one another. Ages of children can vary, however keep in mind children age 8 and over can use the machine independently while children under 8 would be best to have a parent helping at the machine. Classes average 2 hours. Based on the age of your child and your sewing levels, the class may take additional time. Stay as long as you want that day to finish your project. If you find that you need to return another day to complete a project, social sewing rates will apply.
