Sewing is a valuable life skill for any child to learn. From practicing fine motor skills to increase problem solving to building self-esteem to nurturing design talent, sewing unlocks the doors to a variety of interesting projects and of course our very mission at MSV: Our after school students learning and continuing speaking Spanish vocabulary in a different and a fun way.
