Sew with Kelly

I have many loves. Love for people. Love for food. Sewing, baking, entertaining. But one of my first loves was teaching. 

After dabbling in some private sewing lessons, guest teaching in the classroom, even running a learn-to-sew workshop for charity, I am proud to announce that I am now teaching kids to sew at an art studio!

Introducing: 'Sew with Kelly' at The Art Room in Toronto's west-end neighbourhood!

I'm so excited for this opportunity to teach young beginners some of the beautiful projects that can be made on the sewing machine! Learning how to sew can help children develop fine motor skills, apply basic math principles, and give them the sense of what it's like to drive a car. Sewing can be beautifully creative and also have a wonderfully practical element. 

The lovely Holly Wheatcroft owns and operates The Art Room, a bright and cozy art studio that offers art classes for all ages. Her work is colourful and exciting and I'm so thrilled to be part of her spring/summer programs offered at the studio.

I will be teaching for four Wednesdays in June, two weeks per project. Choose between the Pocket and Stripe Tote, and Appliqué Owl.

I carefully designed each of the two projects as beginner projects with an artistic feel. Fabrics and details can be personalized in-class to make the project unique.

The class fee also includes a project sewing kit engineered to simplify construction for young children. Everything you need to complete the project will be provided.

I'm so proud to be teaching these classes in June! Check out the details on The Art Room website and sign your child up today!
