This Sewing Camp is for Experienced Sewists Only! 

Each Summer week has 3-5 themed projects that will be completed over the course of the week. Students will learn new techniques and sewing skills. Students will also have some “Free Sewing” time to break up the day and be creative. We will eat lunch outside as weather permits.

Please bring a water and an allergy friendly lunch. 

Week #7: Upcycle Week

This week we are utilizing outgrown clothing and fabric scraps to upcycle some earth friendly projects. Bring some outgrown T-shirts to make your own Memory Quilt. We will learn how to cut and plan the squares of the quilt, work with t-shirt fabric and add a fleece backing. We will learn how to make our own scrappy fabric and upcycle jeans to make a Jeans Tote Bag. We will add in an upcycled zipper pouch if time allows!


Prerequisite: This class is for Experienced Sewists only. Students need to have stamina and patience for prepping and cutting this project. We are working with challenging fabrics. Please do not register for this class unless your child can handle the work required to complete these projects.
