After School Sewing Program

 

Made is overjoyed to be in our 5th year teaching the world of sewing to your sewists all over the Seattle Metro area, both in our studio and at their schools. We have taught over a 1000 young sewists the art of sewing, and how to channel their creativity into wearable art. Our goal is to have fun, learn to sew, be creative, and have sewing adventures that last a lifetime. No matter what their level of sewing we have a host of great projects for them to do and work hard to change them up each session and year.

What Will They Make?

Oodles of fun stuff! We like to take into account the interests and experience of our students in each class. On our first day, we do a fun starter project. We then ask what they are interested in making over the course of our time together. After that, the sewing world is ours to play in, while fitting in as many fun sewing projects as we can! Some previous projects have been:

  • Pillows with secret pockets
  • Monster Stuffies
  • Messenger Bags
  • Circle Skirts
  • Pajama Bottoms
  • Bow Ties and Ties
  • Shirts
  • Towels with Animal Hoods
  • Infinity Scarves
  • Tote Bags
  • Holiday Gifts
  • Phew...the list goes on and on!
