Winky Cherry has been teaching children to sew for more than 40 years. She is the author of the My First Sewing Book series of kits, and a teaching manual and two DVDs based on The Winky Cherry System of Sewing.

This DVD based on teaching a class using My First Sewing Book shows you everything you need to do to build a successful teaching program for teaching hand sewing to children ages 5 to 9. Part I is a sewing class with 5 to 9-year-olds. Children can watch this. Part II is a close-up, speeded-up segment with a child sewing a stuffed animal. In Part III Winky Cherry helps you become a good teacher. This DVD is a companion to the teaching manual The Winky Cherry System of Teaching Young Children to Sew.
There are also six books for children in the series. Winky Cherry's unique My First Sewing Book program teaches young children not only sewing skills, but life skills: responsibility, commitment, focus, patience, coordination, organization, and how to follow rules, all through the enjoyment of sewing. In six books, levels progress from simple hand sewing, embroidery, and doll making, to machine sewing, patchwork, and quilting. The three hand sewing books feature clever rhyming instructions for children as young as 5. The three machine sewing books are for children ages 7 and older. All six titles have simple, clearly-illustrated instructions.
Each book builds on the previous books, and each book can stand alone.
