New Sewing Teacher Looking for Guidance
I am a middle school math teacher but have recently become the clothing construction teacher in my school and (in the near future) in my community. I taught 8-12 year olds sewing during a summer program and am teaching 12-14 year olds as an elective class in my school and in an after school club. So many people in my community want to learn that I am getting requests almost daily for an adult sewing class. I am wondering if there is any curriculum out there to guide me? Or any books that you might recommend? I am just starting simply with making bags/purses as they learn about the machine and then moving on to wrap around skirts. Then we will look at fitting issues, etc. I am creating as I go but would appreciate the guidance of more seasoned sewing teachers.
