Our Students are Amazing!!!

Our Sewing School now has many students advancing to our Level 2 projects!  This is so exciting!  That means they have accomplished 20 Level 1 projects and have learned a lot!! On Level 2, they will become the seamstresses they have always wanted to be! Their first project on Level 2 will be making a Cathedral Window pincushion.  Some amazing techniques are learned here! 
Another project on Level 2 is making this wonderful quilt!  One of our students (who is 11 years old!) finished this huge task! She entered her quilt in the fair and received a Best of Show ribbon! That's incredible!  
 Another fun project on Level 2 is making a decorative pillow.  They learn to put a zipper in a pillow!  I know so many adults that would never even dream of doing this!  With a little help, anyone can put in that dreaded zipper!  This pillow also teaches some fabric origami and basic piecing skills.  What a fun addition this would be!
 This is the perfect project for your school binder!  It's a zipper pouch to hold all your school supplies!  Another zipper project for the advancing student! This would make a great gift too!

Simple Stitches Sewing & Knitting School is an on going year round school. Sewing machines are provided for students. No need to have your own machine!
