How to Make Sewing Machines Enjoyable for Kids / Published with Permission


Hello there, this is Janelle (previously known as Jane here) back from a long hiatus from blogging. I am more active here but I'm hoping to make a return to recreational sewing in the near future. 

Sally of Stitch and Sew recently contacted me to share an informative piece about selecting the proper sewing machine for children. As someone who learned to sew as a young adult, I admit that I wish I had started earlier!

From Sally:


How to Make Sewing Machines Enjoyable for Kids 
Children give up on tasks if they aren’t good at them immediately. Yet, you notice how interested your daughter or son always is as you take out your sewing machine. You might let them help thread the needle or perform other tasks, but when it comes to the nitty-gritty of sewing, your adult-sized machine may be too much for them. How can you choose a sewing machine for your youngster that will make their experience enjoyable while keeping them safe?
There are a few key features you should look for in sewing machines for kids. First and foremost, you need a machine that is designed for safety. Next, it should be dependable. Last, but certainly not least, the machine should be able to help develop the sewing skills of your child. If the learning curve is too steep, your child may lose interest. Let’s take a closer look at the best selection of sewing machines for kids.
