Sophie Kerr with Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr
C&T Publishing; $21.95
If one of your goals this year is to get your kids sewing, this would be a great resource. The book is written by 11-year-old Sophie Kerr with the help of her parents, Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio. Sophie began sewing when she was three. The explanations about material and tools, the sewing machine, and the basics of sewing are engaging and will keep kids’ attention. The emphasis on “safety first!” will be appreciated by the adult helper. You will find 16 kid-friendly projects to try, all with clear instructions and sample illustrations. Adult sewists may even learn a thing or two!
