Crafty Sewing Camp

IN PERSON.   Perfect for students as a follow-up to the Intro to Sewing class or camp or if your child just loves to make small projects, like one of a kind stuffies and pouches.  In this camp students will make several small projects and learn to sew in a zipper too!  This is open to all campers age 6 and up who have taken the Intro to Sewing class/camp or have similar experience. (As I review signup there is a possibility for a space or 2 to open up in a closed camp, please let me know if you want to be on a wait list)
