Sew Kool for Kid’s School

July 21, 2010 in General

This week I am at the Martha Pullen School of Fashion Art. I have had the opportunity to assist in teaching high school students to sew along side a wonderful Baby Lock Educator, Susan Zellers. For pre-day classes we have explored the theme of “spa day” by making a towel cover-up, an eye mask, and a terry pillow, and many other neat items. The evenings have been filled with spa activities as well even including a consultation with a Mary Kay Consultant, and learning trends from a Fashion Merchandiser from Belk. These students bring joy to my life with their eagerness to sew, and be creative. They have a wonderful opportunity at this school, and not to mention they sew on the Baby Lock Sophia sewing and embroidery machine. Teens this age love working on this machine with the embroidery component. Tomorrow we are exploring with recycling old t-shirts and making them into a t-shirt quilt.

The girls finished towel wrap and hand glove from day 1.

  1. I own a retail store in Mesa, Arizona and have been teaching tweens/teens all summer how to sew. I will continue to do this…forever! I’m compiling projects to teach to tweens/teens, to get them excited about sewing. I have discovered that most of my students LOVE creating and want to further the interest in the community. Thus far 65-70% of my customer base is retired, and I am determined not to let sewing become a lost art.

    Is there any way I can obtain the directions/pattern for the terry cover-up, eye-mask, as well as any of the other “spa” items?

  2. Those cover-ups are adorable!

  3. I would love to pass on that information but I believe all of the projects are copy righted with the instructors. They are the only people who have the rights to them because many of the projects they created. If I find out any more information I will pass that along to you. I am thankful for people like you who don’t want sewing to become a lost art- it’s too valuable!
