In this book by well-known modern quilters Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr along with their 11-year-old daughter Sophie Kerr, kids will learn how to navigate a sewing machine, make smart fabric choices, and use basic sewing tools. Sixteen kid-friendly projects run the gamut from clothes to bags to accessories while clear, step-by-step instructions from Weeks and husband/design partner Bill Kerr walk kids through the creation of each. Throughout the book, tips from Sophie offer design and construction advice from a kid's perspective. The book "grows" with the sewist, offering more complex projects as the reader's skills develop.
Weeks Ringle and her husband Bill Kerr are professional quilt makers and founders of Modern Quilt Studio (formerly FunQuilts). Bill and Weeks bring a modern twist to the great American quilting tradition with decades of quiltmaking experience and graduate design degrees. They live in Illinois with their daughter, Sophie. 11-year-old Sophie has been playing in her parents' studio and is happy to share lessons with her friends as she learns to sew.
