What a week of camp looks like:
Jennifer, our lead instructor, was a grade school teacher for many years before she began managing our shop. Between that and raising two children of her own, she has much experience working with children and absolutely loves it. She has been machine sewing since childhood and has been integral in teaching the rest of our team how to sew.
All of our instructors are vaccinated. We will abide by any masks mandates that are in place during camp.
All attendees must be at least 8 years old, no exceptions. No sewing experience is necessary. Children can be signed up for a single week or as many as you like. Multiple session sign-ups do not have to be consecutive weeks. All sessions will be capped at 6 students and any sessions with low attendance may be cancelled.
All camp registrations are non-refundable. We are unable to offer make-up sessions, so please plan to have your child attend the full week.
