Come Learn to Sew At Camp Fashionista
If you are 6 & up you will start with hand sewing. You will learn basic stitches like the straight stitch, blanket stitch, and whip stitch as you create darling little projects to take home and treasure. Embroidery is also part of the hand sewing curriculum and is fun to do at any age.
Students should be at least 8 years old to begin sewing on the machine at Camp Fashionista. Sometimes 7 year olds are ready, so ask me to meet with your student to see if they’re ready.
Each student must take the two Level 1 machine sewing classes. These are Level 1W (wovens) and Level 1K (knits - a.k.a. stretchy fabrics).
We recommend that students start with Level 1W (wovens) since they are easier to work with and allow a student to focus on sewing safely, mastering straight stitches and building their confidence.
Please make sure to complete both classes before signing up for more advanced sewing. This will ensure that your child will have the skills needed to be successful with any type of fabric and enjoy sewing.
