Description

Sewing from the Beginning I 
…..A really good sewing kit for youngsters.

Sewing is a wonderful skill for children. It trains hand-eye co-ordination and it’ skills of concentration in an age of fast paced media based entertainment can be a quiet distraction for child and parent alike! This kit has been designed specifically for junior sewers with the advice of educational professionals.

Let me tell you about this Kit!

Except for scissors, everything needed is enclosed to sew this sampler, the idea being that your child can get on with it quietly unaided and there are some parental notes for the bemused parent who has barely sewn on a button!
I have tentatively aged both kits (the  first kit from 8-10 and the second from 11-13) because parents do tend to ask for this information however to be honest all children are different and really only you will know your child’s artistic talents or specific interests.

This first project (Kit I)  starts with the most basic stitches and develop into threaded, looped or crossed stitches. This kit also teaches about following easy charts of small cross stitch patterns.

All the instructions in both kits comprise of both photographic and written directions which are printed onto card so they are easy to hold and keep in order. Much thought has gone into them and I have been lucky enough to have been advised throughout by a team of willing primary school teachers!
The contents of the kit contents itself comprises of a large metal needle, ‘Binca’, a large holed fabric you may remember from school! and beautiful DMC Soft Cotton which is nice and easy for children. I have pre-cut the strands for ease of use and they are placed on a card with clearly marked names and colour patches. Far from it being an old fashioned or outmoded pastime, embroidery is more popular than ever and indeed, many of my American parents still see it as an essential part of their children's traditional domestic education.(Hurrah!)

Pattern Size 15cm x 17cm (Both kits)

A bit about the Second Kit!...

The second kit (Kit II), featured in the other listing in this section moves on to the beginnings of embroidery introducing Chain Stitch, Stem Stitch, Buttonhole Stitch and several others and is in the prettiest pastels and add some little sparkles (Though self adhesive, a blob of glue will be needed.)

I'm just letting you know...

....about the fabric...The design is NOT transferred onto the Binca. No hoop is included or needed for this kit!!

....picture colours may vary... colour reproduction of my pictures depend on your device screen! Likewise my camera and lighting may catch colours differently but with the exceptions of creams looking a bit paler, I work hard to make sure my colours are accurately reproduced in my listings.

.... Instructions are written in ENGLISH... I do NOT offer Digital Downloads for translation and therefore it is up to you to seek your own translation from the written instruction.

....I do NOT sell wholesale to shops

Fantastic kit, such detailed instructions but so easy to follow and very child friendly. My 6 year old daughter is really enjoying learning so sew with supervision from myself. A lovely activity for us to do together.

Additional policies

My customers happiness is my upmost priority and I consider it a personal failure if I have not met expectations. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or special requests. While I can't do everything, there's no harm in asking and NO question is too silly; We all had to start somewhere!
If I have any disasters and anything is forgotten you can be assured I am probably on the case but if for any reason a 'senior moment' has got the better of me and anything is missing do not hesitate to contact me. Note however needles may fall through plastic bags so check your contents thoroughly! I do check the contents of my kits whilst prepped and before sending I check them out with a sticker, but I am only human!
The threads in my kits are accurately calculated and only in EXCEPTIONAL circumstances will I send more.

FAQs

I do not supply wholesale to shops but thank you for thinking of me!
I never mind gift wrapping and often take it upon myself to do so if I know a kit is being sent to someone for a special occasion or Birthday.
PLEASE READ LISTINGS CAREFULLY!!!!! I take huge pains to write about sizes, hoop requirements, and what to expect from embroidery as a hobby. As a result I get a teeeeeny weeeeny bit grumpy if I'm asked something already in the listing because it hasn't been read!
