    Great Book to Teach Kids Machine Sewing, June 19, 2013

    The first Sewing School focuses on hand sewing. Many of the reviews for that book included comments from readers wishing for more machine sewing projects to do with kids. I suspect that may have prompted the authors of Sewing School, Andria Lisle and Amie Plumley, to write this sequel–Sewing School 2.

    I had a chance to look at an ebook copy of this book (on my computer). I really like it! But, before I go any farther describing this book, I want to mention that I WOULD NOT purchase a kindle edition of this book unless you are going to be looking at it on your computer (not on a kindle). Even then, this is one of those books that will be much, much easier to use in print than electronically.

    My daughter, Sami, has been asking since last week to learn how to sew on my machine. She even bought a kids’ machine at a garage sale, which didn’t work. Because she wants to so much, I have promised that I would teach her. I have to admit, though, that I was at a bit of a loss as to where to start and what to make. This book will make it simple for me.

    The book starts off which what supplies are needed. It explains all the different parts of a sewing machine and gives good safety tips. There are a bunch of simple sewing projects (like bags, organizers, a scarf, decorations, a pillow, and more…) that you can use scrap material around your house to make. Yay! I love crafts that we can make with things we already have.

    I think the authors have done a great job writing a book to teach kids how to sew with a sewing machine (and guide their parents)! There is one minor thing that I wish there was more information about in this book.
    That topic is choosing a sewing machine for a child. I have been told that children’s sewing machines are a waste of money. But, what is the best basic sewing machine for them to learn on?

    Books often help pave the way for me. They make a project seem doable when it seems formidable to me and I’m not sure where to start. Sewing School 2 is just that kind of book for me and my family!

    Please note that I received a complimentary ebook copy of this book for review from Storey Books.

    GREAT Gender Neutral Projects, September 13, 2013

    This review is from: Sewing School 2: Lessons in Machine Sewing; 20 Projects Kids Will Love to Make (Spiral-bound)
    My 7 year old son loves when I sew and keeps wanting to make projects. We have done a few small things, but I was looking for a book with lots of pictures and easy, practical projects. This book is IT. It is very difficult to find a beginning sewing book that is not aimed at girls. I was so excited I borrowed this from our library and when I discovered how great it was, decided I needed to order one (doing tonight actually). Tons of projects that can be easily adapted for boys and girls plus at the end of each project there are suggestions for how to change a project to make it your own. The projects encourage easy fabrics such as felt and often uses ribbon as ties or straps. The pictures are fantastic and are of real projects made by kids with all their creativity AND flaws. LOVE LOVE LOVE After we looked through the book the other day my son asked when we can start sewing things. I highly recommend this!

    I bought this book for my 8 year old granddaughter. We are having a great time working on the projects in the book and learning to use the sewing machine. Very well written. I would recommend this book to anyone working with 8 and up great projects.
