If sewing is to add to the mental and moral strength of the children, if a love of the true and beautiful is to come through it, the work must take them into account. The child must not be sacrificed to the model, or garment, by the demand of the teacher for over-accurate work, for neat adjustments at an early age, or for the stupid task. The interest and development of the child must be considered in the selection of the course. Setting her to make articles suited to her capacity and considered by her as worth doing is the only sensible method of gaining her enthusiasm and of bringing out her creative ability. The stitch should be taught as a means by which she may construct a definite article, and not as an end in itself, as is the case in the usual model work. Watch a child learning a new stitch, which will help her construct an interesting article. Her heart is in it, as the subborn little fingers are put in place, and the will power brought into play. Her whole body shows lively interest and she overcomes difficulty after difficulty in her road to success. Give the same child a set of models to make which have been arranged by the teacher apart from the interests of 'childhood and she will become fatigued, and instead of utilizing her own will the teacher will have to step in, and by urging, perhaps even scolding, keep her at her tiresome task. The mental and physical development of the child must show the teacher the sort and amount of work and the best manner of teaching.
