Education

Kids Can Stitch

The Kids Can Stitch Program provides resources and materials to SAGA members for use in teaching children beginning needlework.  Our goal is to foster the art of smocking and related needlework for future generations.

Each Kids Can Stitch Program includes detailed teaching instructions, supply lists and kit suggestions, as well as certificates of completion to copy and present to the participants.  The programs can be used for individual instruction or group teaching. 

SAGA members will earn points for the Artisan Program by leading an approved Kids Can Stitch class.

Additional materials and resources to assist with teaching children can be found under the Forms and Documents / Kids Can Stitch section of this website.

Thank you for helping to foster the love of needlework by teaching the next generation!
