Summer Reading Set Camp


Planning to do some reading, writing, drawing this summer? Combine that love with your love of sewing and make some awesome items to take with you on your summer trips, use by the pool, or lounging around the house! In this intermediate level camp, students will have the opportunity to make a reading pillow complete with pocket, journal organizer and bookmark. We will explore not only the use of the sewing machine but will also include an introduction to embroidery stitches and appliqué basics! A fun camp you won’t want to miss, for students entering grades 1-9 who have taken at least the intro to sewing camp, classes or similar experience.
