"Amazingly Easy For The Kids"

Just started teaching and I am absolutely in love with it. I was amazed at how easy it was to get my studio going thanks to the information I received in my kit. The patterns are amazingly easy for the kids to sew and I love the way the instructions simplify the projects. I love my classes! Thanks Kids Can Sew! P.S. My classes are growing and I’m “sew” excited! I also have to say that I have to agree with another review that this is the most inexpensive start up I have come across. Truly a blessing for me!


How It Began...
The Kids Can Sew Story

Carolyn Curtis, the developer, and founder of Kids Can Sew, started her business 40 years ago out of need to teach her own children. Carolyn designed clothing patterns with instructions that her children could easily understand.

Word got around and soon she was instructing kids from her neighborhood to sew in the basement of her home. She soon had eighty-three students.

Because of the success of her classes, she started teaching women in her area how they too could make extra income teaching kids to sew. Thus, the Kids Can Sew Program was born.

She later designed a line of Kids Can Sew patterns for Simplicity Pattern Company. She also traveled with a major sewing machine company teaching their dealers how to set up sewing classes for kids.

Today Carolyn's business is family owned and operated with her daughters, who grew up learning to sew with the Kids Can Sew & Fashion Design Program.
