Learn to Sew!

ac081376Teaching professionals know that sewing is an excellent vehicle to use when teaching and reinforcing academic skills. You can address many of your state and national standards with sewing, and it’s a fun way to apply and reinforce learning. Nasco’s sewing kits teach practical sewing skills while building self-esteem, reading, and math skills.

These delightful pillow kits contain all of the materials needed to make the pillow (except stuffing): pattern, fabric (65% polyester/35% cotton broadcloth), felt, embroidery floss, notions, thread, needle, name tag, and instruction sheet.
