Are you looking for ways to keep your child engaged with activities that will challenge them over the summer months? Sewing with friends in Fabricate’s lovely downtown studio is a perfect solution.
Sewing requires concentration and focus, problem solving skills, hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. In our summer sewing camps your child will learn a practical skill they can use throughout their life, while gaining confidence and making new friends. Studies have found that sewing a simple project, such as following pattern instructions, fabric selection, color coordination, sizing and fitting, all help stimulate creative thinking, promoting self-esteem and perseverance. In addition, completing a project from start to finish, gives children a sense of accomplishment.
Sew and Swim Summer Camp is a very exciting week which will include projects such as a beach kaftan, drawstring pool bag, stylish shorts, waterproof zippered pouch for wet swim suits, terry-cloth lined totes, and more. The week will culminate in a jaunt to nearby Spruce Pool where we’ll picnic and sport our new summery creations! Our experienced instructors will guide campers through a fun-filled week where campers will learn practical skills such as how to thread a sewing machine and wind a bobbin, sew a hem, read, cut and sew from a commercial sewing pattern, use interfacing, install a zipper and more. Campers will build on fundamentals as they gain confidence and hone skills.
Sew and Swim Summer camp week will take place Monday through Friday, 9am – 12pm, June 18th – 22nd, during which campers will enjoy the full use of our studio’s resources including sewing machines, tools, fabric, thread, interfacing, templates, patterns, books, and embroidery supplies. On Friday we’ll picnic at Spruce Pool where pick-up will be at 1pm. This week will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your child’s summer.
Ages 7 & up.
Price: $375 includes all fabric and materials for the week, as well as project patterns to take home, and entrance to the pool.
