Thank you for visiting Sew It Kids! We are so excited you are here and want to learn to sew. Sew It Academy Kids Edition is an online class for kids ages 8-14 years old. We cover everything from start to finish, so if you have never even touched a sewing machine (mom or dad), you will have no problem helping your child along. We start with the unboxing of a sewing machine and go through all the parts, pieces and functions.

WARNING: I DO NOT recommend allowing your child to start sewing unattended. Teaching young children to sew via online classes requires parental guidance so please know your child and ONLY show them to use a sewing machine when you think they are ready. A sewing machine is a large machine with moving parts, and if you are not careful, you can injure yourself or your child. We take care in going through all steps in each video but it is your job as the parent to use caution. Please be careful and ALWAYS supervise any child when they are sewing on a machine.
