Hurray, the award-winning Sewing Machine Fun series is now available in a single convenient volume! Twice as much  information and nearly double the projects as its predecessor mean that The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids is not only an outstanding course but also an exceptional value.

If a proficiency in sewing is a part of your required curriculum, and if you would like your children to learn how to sew but either don't know how yourself or don't know where to start, then this is the book for you. The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids requires minimal adult supervision and is very strong on the essentials. Not only does the book use lots of great techniques, like puzzles and riddles, to teach the basics, but it also contains numerous ideas for successful sewing projects. All projects build on newly acquired skills and many can be used for gift ideas. For ages seven and up.
  • 13 kid-friendly projects teach children how to sew
  • Projects build on skills learned as kids work their way through the book
  • Games, puzzles, and stitching practice increase kids' sewing knowledge and abilities

    Reviewer: Julie H.  
    This was a gift. I purchased it because she is 8 and has been wanting to learn how to sew. This will be a helpful guide for her busy mom to help her do that!

    Great Book! January 12, 2011
    Reviewer: Cari Dierking from Simpsonville, SC United States  
    The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids is a great book.  It is full of great, simple sewing projects and activity pages for beginning to learn how to sew on a sewing machine.  The thick pages are colorful and inviting.  The projects are simple enough to encourage success and allow for quick completion of the project.  I was disappointed that the book is paperback instead of spiral bound like Sewing Fun for Kids.  The publisher allows photocopying of certain pages in the book, but it is much easier for me to photocopy from a spiral bound book.  The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids is a great beginning sewing book and worth the price.  I would have given it five stars if it included a table of contents and/or index to find desired sewing projects and activity pages.  Definitely recommended.

    What a great way to teach children to sew! October 26, 2010
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from AZ United States  
    We have really enjoyed this book!  I have a vision to teach my daughters to sew, but they always wanted to learn when I would sit down to sew.  It was hard to get something done and teach them (not to mention that I did not have a systematic plan of how to teach them).  When we got The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids, I was able to get my 7-year-old daughter started on a lesson or project and she could work right next to me as I sewed.  (I have multiple sewing machines.)  It worked great!  She was learning and I was getting some sewing done—all without frustration.  Now that she is older, she and I sew and her younger sister is going through the book.   The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids presents beginning sewing in a way I never would have thought of!  It is safe, fun, and the girls learned various skills very quickly. I love the idea of practicing sewing and going through mazes with no thread.  Brilliant!  I heartily recommend this book!

    Enthusiastic 5 stars! October 19, 2010
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oberlin, OH United States  
    Our 7 year old daughter has been begging me to teach her to sew.  I have been dragging my feet because I'm not very good at explaining the technical information she needs to know.  This book does a wonderful job of explaining all the parts of a machine, sewing safety, etc.  I really liked the pre-sewing exercises that helped her become used to the speed and motion of the machine without using thread.  She is steadily working her way through the book with joy and no frustrations (as of yet).  We both highly recommend this book for sewing machine novices.
