Class Opportunity Added: Sew Duluth

Sew Duluth

Sew Duluth is a unique sewing studio that offers sewing lessons and classes for kids aged 8 and up! Learning to sew is “SEW” much more than replacing a button. Our mini-makers will be building their self esteem, hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, concentration, patience, growth mindset, reading skills, basic math skills, and most importantly letting their sparkle and creativity shine!
We supply machines and all sewing implements, you supply the creativity and positive energy.
Students enter a sewing course which consists of 6 levels. All machines, irons, hot glue guns, thread, sewing supplies and patterns will be provided (until the student enters the Workshop level, then the student and Sew Duluth will work together to locate patterns and projects that inspire and challenge the student’s skill progression.) The students will progress through the levels and projects at their own pace.

Sewing sessions run weekly for 6 weeks. Each class is an hour and a half and the total cost is $150.
