While working on Sewing School, we introduced an "Advanced Sewing School" Camp focused for older kids and machine sewing. The kids were so excited! As with handsewing, we started to learn tips and tricks for teaching kids to machine sew both successfully and safely. We also began to develop kid-friendly sewing machine patterns that follow the Sewing School mantra of "nothing has to be perfect" and "sew things that are useful." What we arrived at is Sewing School 2: Lessons in Machine Sewing. The format is very similar to Sewing School. It's just what we wanted it to be - fun, informative, and full of creative kids and ideas.
Justin Fox Burks really captured the kids and spirit of the book.
Since machine sewing can be a little tricky at times, the useful "Skill Check" sections break down new skills such as How to Make a Casing, Sewing in a Circle, and Pin It!
I hope you and the kids in your life will enjoy Sewing School 2! Hopefully, it's already found its way to your favorite book and fabric stores, and you can also order it on Amazon.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing!
