Kids and teens learn how to sew progressively with easy to sew projects in a weekly class format.  Students receive a full-color workbook and pattern pack with 6 to 8 projects. The Level 1 workbook is designed for the first time sewist. Students work at their own pace practicing foundational sewing skills with the degree of difficulty increasing with each level. Students typically complete a project every 4-weeks which include clothing for themselves and craft projects.

New students entering the program start with the Level 1 Kids or Teen workbook. Fabric and notions will be provided for the first two projects. Students are required to purchase their own fabric and notions for the remaining projects. After completing the Level 1 book, students continue through the program with workbooks 1.5, 2, and 3. Workbooks are available for purchase at the time of registration for each level.

Once all the workbooks have been completed, students are introduced to store-bought patterns to continuing building their sewing skills with more complex projects. All the basics skills are covered then progress to more advanced techniques.
