Can they thread a needle?
Perhaps you always wanted to learn to embroider a gift?
Well, stop putting off learning this basic skill. Plan to learn to sew this Spring Break, Summer vacation or Winter Break. How about after school instead of mindless vegging out with video game?
Six years ago I taught my 11 year old grand daughter to sew so simple embroidery stitiches. She plans on being a surgeon one day. She has a head start on those stitching skills.
