Summer Camp 2022 - Picnic in the Park (11 and Up)

There are two levels of sewing camp this year. This camp is for Ages 11 and Up.  The older group will be making things for a Picnic in the park!! 

Camp tuition includes a mechanical sewing machine that is easy to operate and maintain.  Students will learn how to care for their machine as well as how to thread it, wind bobbins, and sew.
