The kids will learn how to fully use and care for their machine, make a project every day and take it ALL home with them at the end of the week! They love having their OWN machine to use whenever they want and they know how to use it. The retail price of this wonderful electronic machine is $600. The machine has tons of functions, is light weight, and so adorable. We have SO MUCH FUN! (We even take a break for snacks). The only things they need to bring are the incidental sewing supplies, i.e. Scissors, seam ripper, pins, pin cushion (preferably magnetic pin cushion), wonder clips, fabric marking pen, tape measure, seam guide, basket or container to keep it all in, and their EXCITEMENT!
