Instructor : Zaheera – Jajahit
Hand sewing is a great way to boost the child’s motor skills and hand-eye coordination. This year, the Modern Sewing Market and Zaheera of Jajahit proudly brings to you an entertaining kid’s sewing workshop: an Introduction to Cross Stitch just for your little kids! Workshop price is RM 90, which includes a material pack costing RM15, so your kids only have to bring themselves. This workshop is reserved for kids between the ages of 7 to 12 years old. Your kids will learn the basics of making an X stitch using embroidery thread and create a image from those tiny Xs. They’ll have their hands busy till the 3 hour workshop is up!
Zaheera Abdul Ghani started sewing from young with the help of her mom’s old sewing machine. Both her mum and aunt loved to sew and hence, shared their love with Zaheera. She then started making and selling her handmades to her family and school friends.
Zaheera has undertaken bag making and clothes making classes to hone on her sewing skills. in 2016, she started teaching sewing to children ever since her first born wanted to help her with her sewing. Soon afterwards she started teaching homeschoolers this important life skill. Besides sewing, Zaheera also enjoys needle work like crocheting, hand embroidery, cross stitching and weaving.
