Is anyone out there teaching children?
I am involved in the 4H program here in Pennsylvania. I have four young ladies (9-10 year old) who are third years. Their project is the Ohio Star pillow. And I have two first years (8-9) who are making four half-square triangles into a wallhanging.
We meet for 1-1/2 hrs on Saturday mornings. I have an adult helper and two sewing machines.
The girls are eager and they are like little sponges. We play fabric store where they search for a focus fabric and them match in. When I took them to a quilt shop, I cut them loose and they did a great job in a real shopping situation. I am teaching all of the terms as we go. They are too young to use the rotary cutter, but they watch as I explain what I am doing.
Obviously, I love working with my little folks. Each one should teach one. Blessings, Suzanne
