Camp at a Glance

Aspiring designers and creative campers interested in learning new skills, look no further! Fashion and Machine Sewing Camp provides an immersive experience into the world of machine sewing. Skilled Handwork Studio teachers instruct beginners and advanced campers on how to construct clothes and accessories from start to finish. Choosing from our large catalog of patterns provided by our exclusive partner, Simplicity Creative Group, means this camp is about choice. Campers have the freedom to decide what to pursue from backpacks, to stuffed animals, to dresses, and PJ’s all while learning new skills. With our endless options, campers can come back week after week, and year after year. No experience is necessary, and all the supplies and materials are included.

Before Care (7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.) and After Care (4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.) are available through Big Blue Summer, and additionally, Handworks Studio offers After Care for full day campers (3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m, $125/week).
