Unlike sewing-only courses, our day camps provide a big-picture introduction to fashion. Students learn sewing skills along with illustration, accessory design fashion history, the business of fashion, entrepreneurship, and more. Plus, we round out the full day camp with a little DIY and crafting too!
Join us during the Mid-Winter Break this February 2021!
To keep young minds engaged, each camp day will feature unique design and fashion lessons including the highlight of the day; sewing. During sewing class, fashion campers learn to use a sewing machine (complete with finger guards and speed control!) plus layout a pattern, measure and cut fabric. By the end of the week, campers will have created garments or accessories that they can take home and wear!
Plus, we go beyond the sewing machine with a big-picture introduction to fashion. Campers learn sewing skills along with illustration, merchandising, fashion history, the business of fashion, entrepreneurship, and some DIY! All lessons are age appropriate, easy to understand and hands on.
Our specialized curriculum—developed in partnership with pattern makers, illustrators, and educators over ten years—is designed around what works best for kids, including:
Limited Class Size “Boutique” limited class sizes of 6 students and a teacher ratio of 1:6 to ensure every kid gets the attention they deserve.
Exceptional Teachers Our teachers combine real-world experience with specialized training and bring kindness and empathy along with energy and enthusiasm to the classroom.
Safety First Studio managers are certified and trained in CPR and first aid. Covered blades on fabric scissors along with finger guards and speed control on all sewing machines ensure little hands are always safe!
