What People are Saying About This

Maya Donenfeld

Sewing School 2seamlessly takes children to the next skill level with the same clear instructions and inspiring photographs as their first book. It's just what follow up books should be, however it's a fine stand alone, too! Learning how to use a sewing machine can be intimidating, but the authors have created the perfect resource for demystifying the process. The directions and projects are not only fresh and enticing, but are presented in a language that's totally accessible to today's young stitching crew. With this book in their hands they'll be ready to make just about anything they dream up!

The lessons, step-by-step photos, and fun kid-friendly (and kid made) projects inSewing School 2are hugely inspiring forbudding crafters. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of lots of photos of happy children making and using their sewing projects.
