We've got you covered!  Let's keep these creative kids going!

We are currently offering three types of programs:

1. Afterschool programs in sewing and design.  Sewing = hand-skills, math, engineering, art and creativity. 

We have also found that sewing is meditative, connective, and calming.  Children have told us our sewing afterschool program is the one thing they look forward to!  Kits available, or bring your own!


2.  We are on YouTube.  You will find projects for complete beginners and more!

Please subscribe to see new programs as they become available!!  More coming soon!

4. Coming Soon: Our popular curriculum: Textiles in Colonial America. We bring history, social studies, and art together for a comprehensive semester-long program about how early Americans created their lives through fibers, textiles and simple tools.  More than four hands-on project tutorials!

Aligned with the common core curriculum! For schools, pods, and  home-schooling. 


Please email us for any questions or requests:  info@theCIFA.org.  Let us help you and your kids!

The Children's Institute of Fashion Arts
