The Kids Can Sew Story

Kids Can Sew® & Fashion Design is a program designed for teaching kids to sew. Kids Can Sew started over 35 years ago in a basement home.  There were no sewing patterns easy enough for kids to sew. At the urging of both sets of in-laws (oh my!), I had no idea where to start teaching 4 girls and 2 boys to sew. I  began to draft patterns and write illustrations and instructions for kids to understand.  I then started the very first Kids Can Sew Sewing School in 1983. From there, I began to help others learn how to make money teaching kids to sew in a very efficient and effective way. Since that time, I've dedicated my life to helping others!
