What it is: Do you or/and your child have a knack for fashion. If you do, and you are looking for a fun activity for you and your age appropriate kiddos, you may want to check out Sew Crafty "where learning to sew is sew easy and sew fun". I visited Sew Crafty and met the owner Ms. Toni (pictured below), who also owns a child play facility next door, Fun Zone (http://stircrazymomsofdurham.
blogspot.com/2010/10/fun-zone- drop-in-childcare-in-downtown. html).
Sew crafty offers classes for children and their families, both private and group lessons. They also host craft spring/summer camps, parties, and for you American Doll fans, they have a class for making accessories and clothes for your doll. Not only do they teach sewing clothes, but their services include tote bags, beaded jewelry, and polymer clay sculpting.
What we liked: This establishment is very organized, and although it requires lots of hands on work, the instructors are ready and willing to help any process along. They allow creativity in your own right. They come equipped with all your sewing essentials as you will see from the pictures below and are ready to work with you. This space would make for an explorative day with Fun Zone next door, eateries, and a bustling downtown to keep you entertained.
What could be better: Parking can be tricky depending on when you go because it is located in the heart of downtown Durham.
