Homeschool Sewing Program

In the Homeschool Sewing Program at Little Stitch Studio students learn to sew and create clothing for themselves (or their pets!). Each student works on their chosen project at their own pace.  To provide excellence in instruction, classes are limited to five students each. In the past years students have learned some pattern making as well as fashion illustration, the history of fashion and all about textiles.  Sewing combines the best of art, science, math, history and sustainability.

DESCRIPTION

Little Stitch Studio is a fashion program that teaches kids and teens sewing and fashion design throughout the school year and summer. Through hands-on learning, children are introduced to the world of fashion.

Classes combine the practical skill of sewing with pattern making, draping, textile science, illustration and fashion history to enable young designers to discover the joy and excitement of creating something with their own two hands.

  • Sept 14th - Oct 19th 2022 
  • 1.5 hour classes
  • Price $225 for each 6-week course
  • Ages 10 and up
  • All Supplies Included*

Each student works on their project at their own pace. With a student/teacher ratio is 5:1, there is lots of guidance. The studio has six sewing stations for a class of five students.

Projects progress in difficulty to build your child's sewing skills and change each season so that students can continue to sew and learn. I focus on trendy pieces that can be worn such as handbags, tops, skirts, pants and dresses.

DETAILS
Classes meet once per week for 6 weeks. Fall season 2022 class options:
  • Wednesdays: 9/14-10/19


Missing classes? One make-up class per student can be accommodated during each session.

COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION
Since Covid numbers are high across Virginia, I am once again requiring face masks to be worn inside the studio.  Out of an abundance of caution, I try to keep the door open as much as possible and have an air purifier in the main room of the shop, as well as two ceiling fans running.  The studio, bathroom and shared supplies are cleaned daily.

 

If you think your child might be interested in sewing, please reach out!
