Sewing Camps for Kids
Sewing Camps for Kids
New students learn sewing machine operation/safety and work on three easy starter projects. These are designed to teach safety and proficiency on the sewing machine: a belt, a small drawstring bag and a larger bag. Generally, these can be completed in a 3-day Camp. Students are then ready to forge ahead on their sewing skills, with lots of freedom to choose their future projects, based on age and skill level. Our only requirement for new students is that they attend at least one 2-Day Camp so that they can enjoy more satisfaction from their intensive 1st day's efforts.
Who's Eligible: Ages 6 -16
Cost: $57 per camp class + class supplies, which must be purchased separately **
Flexible Schedule - Our self-paced Camps have an open-style enrollment
The Sewing Camps are open for enrollment all summer, through the middle of August. Our open-ended scheduling fits in with summer travels, busy weekends and other activities.
Summer Sewing Camps
Three schedule options for Summer Sewing Camps: 2-Day, 3-Day or 5-Day Camps
2-Day Camp: In the 2-Day Sewing Camp (Tuesdays and Thursdays), new students learn sewing machine operation/safety, with time allowed to complete two of the three easy starter projects – a belt and a small drawstring bag. This is perfect for new students trying out sewing for the first time to see if they enjoy it enough to do more later on.
5-day Camp: The 5-Day Sewing Camp series gives new students a full orientation on sewing machine skills and basic construction techniques. After completing the starter projects, they will have about two camp sessions for choosing another project. Students attending the 5-Day Camps get to experience more of the satisfaction that comes with achievement. They will have moved a little further beyond just the basic discipline for handling a sewing machine to greater appreciation for the sewing process and the creative range of the sewing arts!
Please be sure to read our class policies before committing to a class time.
