Yesterday, The Washington Post featured this great article: “Sewing is Back,” calling attention to the growing trend of children and pre-teens learning to sew. The article states that “Camps and community centers are offering more sewing classes for kids, as are fabric stores, individual crafters and some schools.” My favorite part is a quote from 10-year-old Eva Sophia, who says “I think it makes me happy because I’m using my hands. I’m not just saying, ‘I want this and will you make it for me or buy it for me.’ ”
