Bags, Pillows and Pouches Camp – June 29 PM


This summer camp will take your sewing skills to the next level with a fun, personalized pillowcase, zipper pouch, and sturdy boxed tote bag project – perfect summer adventure or back-to-school accessories! Students will learn how to sew French seams, zippers, and use interfacing in this camp, helping them bridge the gap between Intro to Sewing and more complex sewing projects. We will also play with various decorative elements, so everyone leaves with projects completely unique and customized!  For students entering grade 1 – 9.
