WEEK LONG SUMMER CAMPS
Summer camps fill up quickly,
so sign up early to assure your spot!
Please don't sign up for classes requiring sewing experience if you don't have any. It's dangerous & will be frustrating. You must be able to thread the machine, wind the bobbin and sew safely and independently to have a good experience. Of course we are here to refresh your memory and assist you, but you must be comfortable on the sewing machine already. If you're not ready, start with LEVEL 1W on a weekend, or First Steps in Fashion in June as a camp.
Level 1K is beginning sewing with knit fabrics. This will prepare your camper to sew projects using stretchy knit fabrics. If the camp you want uses knits, please complete Level 1K before camp.
1/2 DAY CAMPS - MON TO FRI.
9:00 AM - 12:00PM OR 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$330 plus materials ( varies by project )
FULL DAY CAMPS
MON TO FRI.
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
$610* plus materials ( varies by project )
* this is a $50 savings for all day camp
LUNCH TIME: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP
For our Summer camps or classes longer than 3 hours, please remember to pack a snack, and lunch (for full day campers).
I have water, a small refrigerator and microwave.
For those who prefer to purchase lunch, please send money and permission for Starbucks or Bagel Guys.
They are both a few doors down in the same plaza so no streets to cross
Don't worry, they're supervised at all times!
If your child has allergies, make sure we understand the procedure for any medications you send.
Each weeks camp that makes clothing ends with a FASHION SHOW FRIDAY to strut your stuff down the catwalk and show your creation to friends and family!
HOW TO PREPARE FOR CAMP
We like to make coming to camp as easy as possible therefore there is very little you need to do to prepare.
All materials for projects are provided so you don't have to go to the fabric store wandering around hoping you bought the right thing! I have a great selection of adorable fabrics to choose from.
Make sure you have completed the pre-requisites for the camp you are signed up for. Level 1W for woven fabric projects and Level 1K for knit fabric projects.
These are offered every month on the weekends, and if that doesn't work for your schedule you can take
First Steps in Fashion in June as a 1/2 day camp.
If you want to complete both woven and knits you can do the full day camp in June and be set to create whatever you want all summer!
What is a full-day discount?
Sign up for morning & afternoon camp the same week and save yourself $50.
We won't be able to attend a full week of camp, is that OK?
It's Ok, but not something we recommend. Missing a day means missing important time you need to finish your project. Sorry but we can't prorate the cost of your camp week, and you camper may not be able to complete that week’s projects.
Can I transfer my camp session to a different week?
Sure, just give us a call and, space permitting, you can change your camp week, up to seven days before the start of your camp week.
Can I cancel my enrollment and get a refund or credit?
No problem, things change a lot during summer. All you have to do is give us a call. Here's our policy:
- January - May 1: Receive a refund minus a $25 processing fee.
- May 2 - June 1: Receive a refund minus a cancellation fee of $95 per session.
- After June 1: No refunds, but space permitting you can change your camp week, up to seven days before the start of your camp week.
A few other things to note:
- Policy applies to all camp cancellations.
- All refunds will be credited via original payment method
- Camp fees are not refunded or prorated for days of camp missed due to illness or injury
- Camp fees from unused sessions cannot be applied to future purchases
All sewing camps require prior completion of Level 1 sewing or it's equivalent except:
First Steps in Fashion and Hand Sewing
Machine Sewing Camps are for ages 8 and up.
Sometimes 7 year olds are ready to sew on the machine, so ask me to assess your child
Hand Sewing is for age 6 and up.
Fashion Illustration is for age 7 and up.
We maintain a very low camper to staff ratio of 5:1 so your camper is sure to get all the help they need.We do everything we can to maintain a safe nurturing environment that results in Happy Campers!
