My First Sewing Machine Book & Kit
With a clear understanding of the concepts of sewing, and the skills developed through hand sewing and embroidery, children are now introduced to the sewing machine on an elementary level. Pictures are substituted for words to help children who are just learning to read. Rhymes and silly names for machine parts help children remember information and rules. Children learn about seam allowances, tapering, snips, clips, stitching inside and turning the shape outside. Kit includes Sewing Practice Sheets and fabric for two stars.
Author Winky Cherry believes that children should learn to sew by hand before they learn to use a sewing machine. Hand sewing skills develop finger dexterity, and teach the value of patience and practice. This series gently leads children through their first sewing experiences.
