Textiles 4 Tweens at St Cuthbert's will be presented by Gracie Matthews and will offer children aged 9 - 12 years of age, the opportunity to learn to sew on safe speed adjustable sewing machines.

They will learn threading, problem solving, and general machine use. We will complete easy sewing projects to teach finishes, seams, pockets, detailing, applique etc while utilising re-purposed or vintage inspired textiles.
