Survey: Sewing classes for 'tweens / Teens
We’re often asked about sewing classes for children. Scheduling has always been the most difficult issue so, I usually suggest a tutoring session instead, allowing the day and time — as well as project and pace — to be tailored to the specific child‘s needs. It can be challenging to keep the cost of 1-to-1 student/teacher ratio affordable, though.
The purpose of this survey, is to determine the interest level, timing and budget constraints that might work for after-school and school-break group classes this Winter… and beyond, if all goes well.
Please take this survey if you are the parent of a child (boy or girl) that really has interest in learning to sew. Consider sharing it with other parents at your child’s school, in your neighborhood or, family. When there seems to be consensus of timing and interest, I will put together a class offering and contact you via email for “first dibs”. Thanks!
