My mother launched me into learning how to sew when I was in elementary school, and I taught MY daughter (and her friends) how to sew, but an adult friend of mine wants me to teach HER, and a couple MORE friends have chimed in that they, too, want to learn... and will I teach them, too?
So, the question arises: what EXACTLY should I teach them? What beginner projects can best equip them for later sewing success? I’ve kind of been scanning what certain online sources recommend for a simple sewing curriculum and they are all over the map, emphasizing a variety of things...
But I thought I would ask you, my Sparkly friends, partly because I know just how diverse and experienced you all are in all kinds of arenas, but also because I know just how HELPFUL you all are!
If you had only about 3 sessions to teach sewing, what skills would you be sure to teach? What projects would you use to teach those skills? If you could add a few MORE sessions, which techniques or projects would you add to your sewing curriculum?
Tomorrow I’ll share my vision so far.
