We have a few great classes coming up to celebrate the amazing Mothers all around us! We have created a special opportunity for parents to take a class with their children. It is difficult to teach children and adults the basics of sewing in the same classroom for a few reasons: all age groups learn to sew very differently, we try and respect the people who have left their children at home for to do something for themselves, and it presents big challenges with patterns and project selection. For Mother’s Day, we are throwing caution to the wind and giving it a try!
If you simply want to make something special for your Mom, Autumn will be teaching students how to make an apron out of Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing book on Saturday May 1 from 1-4pm. See the Mother Love Apron class description in our web store for more details.
You could sign up as a pair for the Apron Strings class with Shelly Figueroa, offered from 2 – 5 PM on Saturday, May 8. In this class, the mothers will sew a full apron for their child and the children will sew half aprons for their mothers. This is a terrific opportunity for you to learn new skills, create a useful kitchen basic, and enjoy creating something to cherish with your child. This class is open to anyone age 8 and beyond. Class size is limited to 4 parent/child pairs.
Another option for a parent and child class that day is Family Felt Fun, with Margy Alexander. From 1 – 3 PM on May 8, you can enjoy the tactile experience of working with merino wool fiber and explore the process of creating with your child. In this class you will get wet and play with pre-felt. It is perfect for the parent and child who love to create together. This class is open to anyone age 8 and beyond. Class size is limited to 4 parent/child pairs.
We have also heard a few Moms have put in requests for everything from Sewing machines (ooohhhlala), to classes, and we are happy to help out with gift certificates in any amount.
One Response to “Feeling the Mother Love”
Your website makes sewing look fun. When my mom used to sew, it never looked like she was having a good time. She always looked rushed, a little grouchy and wanted us out of her way.
One question for you:
Do you collect antique sewing machines?
