Textile Boxes for Children

On the 5th of April during the school holidays myself and Margaret another Quilter and one Mum had a session for children from the age of 7-12 years. It was to see if there is an interest for Young budding quilters in the area. There was 5 willing participants and each made a fabric box.
There was choosing fabric, cutting up jeans, cutting and bonding pictures then sewing on the sewing machine.
As you can see by the results they all finished and had a wonderful morning. There is always the comedian and put theirs on their head! :)
It would be lovely to do some more of these.

  1. We are always in hopes that the younger generation will have the same passion for sewing that we enjoy. Introducing them to the process when they are this age, is certainly a good way to invest in future quilters.
