The surprising thing that today's guest discovered is that kids thrive when they learn how to sew!

Teaching kids how to sew helps with focus and concentration, self-esteem...and a sense of pride in creating something themselves.

Not to mention, they get to create something beautiful. Trixi Symonds says there are no bad stitches and she designs simple sewing projects for kids and their parents.

Trixi Symonds is a Sydney-based sewing teacher with thirty years of experience behind her. She’s a well-known softie designer, founder of the widely successful global initiative Sew a Softie, and the author of three sewing books for parents and kids.

Since 2016, Trixi’s Sew a Softie has been inspiring parents and educators all over the world to begin sewing with their kids. She provides her unique softie tutorials absolutely free of charge through her Sew a Softie blog and Youtube channel. Her softie designs stress fun, creativity, simplicity, innovation and the importance of projects that young kids can make by themselves.
