    I would call your local county extension service and ask them about 4H classes for her. They have been the start of a passion and even a career for many.

      Thankyou for that. I will check this out. Karen (GD), is even designing her clothes for me to sew for her. She is a kick. THANKS

    Take a look at this website.  It is the Master Sewing Volunteer program sponsored by the Texas Coorperative Extension Service.  On the right side of the page is a link that gives counties with volunteers.    They have quite a few volunteers in the Texas program so maybe you can find some classes close to your granddaughter.

        One of the happiest experiences of my life was when my 9yo DGD asked me to teach her to sew--I thought she's never ask!  In your situation, Cooperative Extension is the way to go; often the instructors aren't as rigid as some for-credit school teachers.  In Louisiana, our local Cooperative Extension Agent offers beginning sewing classes in the summer.

         Also, please, please buy her some high quality scissors and pins.  It is too daunting to try to work with inferior tools.  God bless you both.  Galey

          Thanks, I agree about the tools. I bought the family a sewing machine about 4ys. ago. At that time iI also made them a sewing box full of tools. When she was out in Wa. last summer we did alot of sewing so she really likes sewing. She is soooo cute. (I don't sound like a Grandmother) HA! Thanks again, Sally

            Also check with sewing machine dealers or quilt stores in her area... the kids classes or summer/school vacation camps offered in this area are always full - there are a lot of kids in that age range looking to learn to sew!Karen
