Kids Classes

Sewing camps are designed for children ages 8 and up. If your child, who is younger than 8, wants to sew, please register him/her for a Young Sew·ers Workshop or contact Elizabeth to arrange private lessons. Younger learners will be exhausted by focusing this long several days in a row. Thanks!

Guide to Sewing Levels
Level 1:
Learn to thread and use the sewing machine. Have a great introduction to sewing processes as you pin, cut, iron and sew several fun projects, developing skills to sew consistent straight seams and seam finishes.
Level 2:
Strengthen your understanding of sewing processes and refine your sewing skills as you sew some super projects that require consistent sewing and/or feature curved seams. (Teens start sewing with knits and learn to use the serger.)
Level 3:
Learn how to sew projects that feature great topstitching, darts, different seam allowances, bias tape, or knit fabrics. Start reading printed sewing instructions. Learn to use the serger.
Level 4:
Gain more experience reading printed sewing instructions as you sew projects that require various stronger sewing skills: pleats, darts, gathers, buttonholes, facings—and more knit fabrics. Look what you can do now!
Fashion Camp:
With the sewing skills you have learned you are ready to express your personal style. Choose any of our projects to customize, or bring your own idea. First, you will sketch your concept on a croquis (fashion figure) that's provided, and then you get to make it real. Add pockets, zippers, or trims, or upcycle old jeans or men's dress shirts. Creativity is so much fun! (prerequisite: at least 2 sewing camps)
