Learning to sew

Our beginning students all learn to sew on paper.  This helps them to control the needle and tension.  Too loose and it becomes knotted, too tight and it rips the paper.  The dots also help to teach space and visual recognition of straight lines.  This how my grandmother taught me, and time and time again it has shown itself to be an invaluable start!
