There are many benefits to students and teachers when each child has their own curriculum (pattern & workbook) to learn from.
For example: During COVID-19 many Kids Can Sew Licensed Instructors were able to continue teaching (virtually, of course) because students had their own workbook and patterns and could continue to work from home during their lessons.
For teachers that are again able to teach in-person classes, sharing of supplies is a concern to many parents and teachers with the onset of COVID-19. Since each student has their own Kids Can Sew pattern & workbook, students can easily learn and problem solve their way to success, with your help.

Curriculum Questions

Each Student Curriculum comes with full color instructions, professionally printed patterns, skills chart, and measurement chart. The curriculum is designed in a unique way which provides each student with a strong sewing foundation. 

Each Student Curriculum includes 6-8 patterns depending upon the skill level.

The curriculum patterns start at approximately $4.50 per pattern. The cost of the curriculum patterns are less than a commercial pattern or a downloadable pattern. Each Student Curriculum Kit includes 6-8 printed patterns and full color instructions organized into workbooks.
You resell the Curriculum Kits to your students. This means that ultimately, the curriculum doesn't cost you (the teacher) anything since your students pay for their Curriculum Kit.

The curriculum focuses on clothing and some craft projects that students absolutely love! Each level introduces new skills the student can learn and master.

A student generally finishes a skill level each school year and enrolls the following year to start the next skill level. Students generally stay enrolled for 3 or more years when they are using the full Kids Can Sew Curriculum. This means, you can ultimately keep a student for 3 or more years! Just think, that's 3 or more years of income from just one student. Think about the income you could generate if you had 25 students!

The Kids Can Sew curriculum is designed for kids ages 6 and up. We also have a teen curriculum available also.
