The art of sewing is something that is quickly being lost. Many students no longer have access to home economics sewing classes in schools and it's becoming much more economical to purchase items as opposed to sewing them by hand. However, sewing is such a great skill for youth to learn. It gives them hands on practical experience with subjects like Geometry, Color Theory, Creative Design, and more. This is a set of (3) 4 hour classes.
