The Winky Cherry System of Teaching Children to Sew teaches children sewing plus social and growth skills. Levels progress from hand sewing to embroidery and machine sewing. Author and teacher Winky Cherry believes that children should learn to sew by hand before they learn to use a sewing machine. Hand sewing skills develop finger dexterity and teach the values of patience and practice.
This series of books starts boys and girls as young as five. The six books are packaged as kits with the key materials for a first project and shopping lists for simple sewing supplies. Along with the teaching manual and DVD, they offer a complete, thoroughly tested sewing program for children ages 5 to 11 who will learn patience, manners, creativity, completion, and how to follow rules...all through the enjoyment of sewing. Each book follows a project from start to finish with clever rhymes and clear illustrations. My First Sewing Book is also available as a DVD
