Sewing is coming back, thanks to the sewing design show on HGTV. Sewing is a good thing for adults and children to learn. It allows them to be able to release their creativity. Both children and adult feel such a feeling of satisfaction when they have completed their sewing project. It is great for the self-esteem, too!
Learning how to sew might just be the most satisfying skill you have ever learned. There is no limit to what you can design and create. Think of the money you can save by sewing all of the decor needs that you have in your home! Or, by sew original projects and give them as gifts and to be able to sell them to others.
I have been a sewing instructor and Window Treatment Specialist for many years.
In my experience, some adults and children fit great in a sewing class. They enjoy the group setting and are excited to share their projects with others in their class. Sometimes great friendships are established in a sewing class!
There is a negative side to attending a sewing class. I have found that some adults and children learn so quickly that they get bored waiting for the other students in the class to catch up with what they have finished five minutes ago. Most of the time, the sewing teacher will show the students the first step to create the project that they are all making.
After all of the students have completed that step it will be time to move onto the next step. Some students catch on to sewing so quickly and are so excited about their accomplishments that they want to continue on to the next step of the sewing project immediately. They get so frustrated that they have to wait on others to finish that they do not want to go back to the sewing class anymore.
That same student may never know how talented he or she really is because they were not in the right learning environment. He or she is the perfect person for private sewing lessons. The student has the opportunity to learn and accomplish as FAST or as SLOW as they want to. It is awesome to see my sewing student smiling as he or she accomplishes each step of the project being worked on. Another great thing about attending private sewing lessons is the student is allowed to choose the project he or she would like to make.
Some adults or parents have shied away from private sewing lessons because the
think they are too expensive. They really are not as expensive as you think they are. Knowing that you or your child will have a better chance of sticking to sewing because of the individual attention you will receive is worth the money. You will love the smile on your face when you are learning the creative skill of your choice!
