Club Descriptions

Knitting Club

In this program children are taught the fundamentals of how to knit, cast on, bind off and purl. All materials are provided in a hand sewn bag for the children to keep. Each week we make progress at our own pace toward making a variety of different projects: wallets, eyeglass cases, stuffies, accessories for stuffies, scarves, hats and more have been made in ThreadHeads knitting clubs. We also explore other yarn crafts like loom knitting and pompom making (a firm favourite with the kids). By the end of term beginners will be knitting confidently; more experienced knitters will be completing projects and more complicated stitch patterns.

Sewing Club

In this program kids are given the opportunity to hand sew a variety of useful projects while developing real life skills.  All materials are provided along with a sewing kit and handmade bag for the children to keep their supplies in. Each week we work through a variety of projects from pin cushions and needle books to button trees, drawstring bags, zipper pouches and hats.  We also experiment with embroidery and patchwork.
