Bunkhouse Books Sewing Resources
Written by JoAnn Gagnon, a homeschooling mom, these books are perfect for teaching girls (and boys too!) the basics of sewing. Each book progresses in a very step-by-step fashion, first acquainting students with the tools of the trade, then instructing them in the basics. Skill-appropriate projects are featured in each book, along with the patterns, so you won't have to search for a pattern that's simple enough to practice on. Stitches & Pins and Buckles & Bobbins are the place to start with beginners, and then you can follow up with Catch the Sewing Bug, Pins and Needles, or Pintucks & Lace to further build students' sewing skills.
