Kids everywhere are in stitches...sewing stitches, that is. They are discovering the wonder and joy found in simple needle and thread. And while sewing offers an array of benefits for children -- it nurtures creativity, fosters cognitive abilities, refines motor coordination, boosts confidence, and gives them a skill they'll use wheir whole lives -- kids know that it's just plain fun. Sewing School authors Amie Plumley and Andria Lisle teach a sewing camp in Memphis, Tennessee, which has earned accolades from delighted children and parents. When families clamored for more, Plumley and Lisle launched a blog,, to rave reviews. Now, they've channeled the best of their children's sewing projects into this lively, how-to-sew book for ages five and up. Featuring 21 inspired projects for young sewers, Sewing School allows kids to create fabric masterpieces with minimal adult supervision. All projects have been kid-tested, most can be made using simple hand stitches, and all can be embellished with a personal touch, making them a terrific outlet for kids' natural creativity. To further inspire young needle-crafters, the book is peppered with photos and quotes from real boys and girls who have participated in the authors' sewing camp. Projects include items that children can hug (pillows, doll, blanket), hold (wallet, tote, draw string pouch), and wear (sleep mask, hat, cuffs, doll skirt). Each project features step-by-step instructions written at a second-grade comprehension level, along with a close-up photo of every step and a photo of the finished project. The book also offers full-sized cut-out patterns in a front pocket and special instructions for how teachers and grownups can help. There are only a few sewing books written specifically for children, and none have the fresh look, fun voice, and contemporary feel of Sewing School. This book is sure to be a hit in homes everywhere as children discover that they can make enchanting, useful items using nothing but simple needle and thread!
