By the time camp is over, you will gain confidence in your sewing skills and be ready to try new projects on your own. This camp is suitable for beginners – girls AND boys – who are familiar with how to use a sewing machine, along with more experienced young sewists.

In addition to the use of a sewing machine, the camp fee includes a $50 gift card for Sew ‘n Save! You can use your gift card to purchase notions to create your basic sewing kit, buy the fabric for your camp projects, get fabric for your next projects, or apply it toward a sewing machine or accessories. The choice is yours … use it now or use it later. You decide!
