The kids did a great job at Sewing Camp making their Rag Quilts. We had two full sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. (I’m sorry I missed two from the morning session in photo.) It kept me running keeping up with all of them but we got them done and I can’t wait to see them after they get them washed and raveled. Great work by a great group of kids! We’ve already had requests for another beginner’s session so there will be one for kids on Sunday, September 26th at 1 pm. Click here to register your young person ages 8- Teens. We even have a session for adults on Saturday September 25th at 1 pm. Click here to register for the adult session. Only two seats left for it.

Yesterday we had two sessions of sewing camp where 12 kids learned to use a machine to sew a pillow. They also learned to hand sew as they completed the pillow after stuffing it. I am sorry I missed the photo of the first group’s pillow but we will catch them all today as they complete the Rag Quilt that they started after the pillow project yesterday. It’s so good to see that many young people want to learn to create things!

Kids Sew Quilts

20190730_153359.jpg At the second day of our Sewing Camp the kids finished their Rag Quilts.  They chose their fabrics on Monday and started sewing and yesterday they finished them.  They were so proud of their work….as they should be!  They learned to choose fabrics, how to sew a pillow and a quilt, how to sew by hand with needle and thread and how to use  machines.  They even got to try a 1946 Featherweight.  And when I was asked if I bought it new I had to laugh.  Kids!!!

Kids Should Learn to Sew

machineThis year for the first time we are offering a “Sewing Camp” for Kids at The Studio on Monday and Tuesday, July 29-30.  I learned to sew when I was very young.  My grandmothers and mom taught me first and then when I was in school my Home Economics teacher took me to the next level.  This is something that I have used my entire life and is a skill that all kids, girls and boys, should learn.  Why you might ask?  Sewing not only helps you to produce something useful and creative but it teaches other skills too….like math skills, problem solving, self-control, how to focus as well as patience.  (That last one I might have missed.  LOL)  If you have a young person, ages 7+, we have a great two day session planned.  Click here to register.
