Welcome to the first Summer Sewing Camp taking place this summer of 2020!
Sewing camp gives campers ages 8-17 the opportunity to learn basic sewing skills while sewing clothing and crafts. Each camp session runs for one week for four hours. Campers need to have completed 2nd Grade to come to camp.
We have the machines, equipment, and patterns here in our workshop. Campers will purchase their own fabric and sew four projects during camp.
Beginner campers will sew a pillowcase, patchwork pillow, purse or beach bag and PJ Capris or pants for their first year.
Advanced campers may choose the beginner projects or from the Projects List
Parents should email their 1st and 2nd camp session preferences to hold a spot for their child. I will email back confirming their spot for that week. Once you have received confirmation, please download and fill out the registration form and mail it to me with your check for $125. If you register before May 10, receive a $15 discount and pay only $110. Sessions fill up quickly so please contact me on your camp preferences as soon as possible.
