Free Tools to Teach Children How to Sew

Oda May here! I’m thrilled to share with you a new resource from American Patchwork & Quilting that goes along with their 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge.  The editors at APQ are passionate about sharing the joy of sewing and they have Introduced Free Tools and patterns to teach children how to sew.

Teaching children how to sew provides valuable life skills, fosters creativity, and boosts self-esteem, says Jennifer Keltner, executive editor of American Patchwork & Quilting. “Participating in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge is a great way to introduce children to the concept of giving back,” she says. “Sewing a pillowcase for charity teaches a child compassion and empathy, all while having fun and learning to sew!”

I learned to sew as a child and what was once just a useful skill became a joyful hobby that has kept my hands busy throughout my adult life. Share your own loving of sewing with the children in your family or your community. APQ’s Teaching Tools are a great resource to get started. Click
