Teacher, fiber artist, wife, and servant to two cats, Meg McElwee spends most of her spare time fiddling with fabric. Meg has a Master's degree in Montessori education and has spent the last several years teaching three to six year-olds in rural Mexico. Montessori By Hand represents the melding of two of her passions: sewing and child development. All patterns are Meg's original designs.
What is Montessori education?
By carefully observing the interests, behaviors and actions of each child, the Montessori parent or teacher designs learning environments in both the home and classroom that meet the child’s physical, emotional, and academic needs.
