Something that is very important to me, and to my daughter is wearing clothes that are modest, and not following the trend of todays world, Modesty Matters is a company who is committed to helping teach sewing using multi sensory teaching, using all patterns that are modest and clothing I am glad to let my daughter wear! So when give the opportunity to review Modesty Matters, You Can Sew, we were very excited to use this great curriculum.
The program is so thourough at teaching how to sew, it starts by teaching you how to thread a machine, and all the parts on the sewing machine including what each of them do, it goes onto teaching different techniques to students which are put to use with the projects at the end of the chapter, they projects included are a pin cushion, an apron, a skirt, and then a-line dress. During the lessons you will work on making an amazing personal reference scrapbook from the written text lessons so you can reference the concepts taught. There is a total of 65 lessons, each class is approximately 45-50 min long. You can Sew includes:
- 30 page glossary
- CD with 5 exclusive patterns
- 1 Inch binder for curriculum and your projects
- Written Text- 159 pages
- 5 DVD’s which include 65 video classes
Dustin now can sew different clothing and has learned so many of the basics of the sewing machine, it did take Dustin and Jake a while to figure out that the first sewing machine we had was not going to work because it needed some repairs. My aunt and uncle graciously gave us a sewing machine they had and were not using and that is what we used in the end.This is the new addition to our house, a sewing table! It is currently used almost daily.
Once we overcame the big problem in finding out that the sewing machine we were going to use was not going to work, it was smooth sailing!
Once he is finished with the program, he is already looking for different projects he can make for people for Christmas! I am quite sure Modesty Matters has taught him an invaluable skill that he will continue to use for years to come. Thank You Modesty Matters for allowing us this amazing opportunity!!
I would recommend Modesty Matters You Can Sew to anyone wanting to teach their children to sew, the program would be most useful if you have girls in the house as a lot of the projects contain patterns meant for girls ex. skirts, dresses/nightgowns. I am planning on purchasing the pattern from Modesty Matters for sewing a modest bathing suit for Serena soon, it is not easy to find a bathing suit that is modest now a days and what better way then to make one!
