Children Sewing Class
About the Teacher
Hi my name is Jane Silcox. I am passionate about teaching sewing and passing on this skill to children!
I am a registered teacher with 24 years teaching experience in primary and early childhood setting. I hold a blue card and first aid qualifications.
About the Class
We have small class size, this allows each child to receive lots of individual attention.
The children have a fun time in our classes and learn lots of skills while making creative sewing projects.
In these classes children will learn hand sewing stitches, threading a needle, tying a knot in thread, as well as basic operation of a sewing machine. Some of our projects include making lavender bags, soft toys, aprons, cushions and sewing for charity.
Classes are held in my well equipped home based sewing and quilting studio.

Here is a testimonial from one of the families that attend Children Sewing Classes:
“Both my girls attend Jane’s sewing classes at Heartfulowl and they love it. The items they sew are amazing and there is a great range utilising hand sewing and getting them to use the sewing machine. I am always so proud -as are they, of the items they get to bring home. The girls get very excited when we get the list of material/items (which are not too many) needed for upcoming projects and feel very important picking out the materials. Jane is teaching my girls a very important skill for life and does it in a very organised fun environment. The class size means the girls become friends and they are always eager to see each other – truly a wonderful kids activity.”The children sewing class is lots of fun teaches children both hand and machine sewing.
