KIDS Summer Camp Ages 8-12

Here comes the fun

Jewel’s is offering a 21 Session Summer Sewing Camp for children aged 8-12, running Jun. 7 to Aug. 18, 2021.

Your little camper will come home with stories about what they learned, the projects they worked on, and the friends they made. Our staff will have fun activities planned every week to cater to every young sewing enthusiast goals!

Camp Highlight:
Campers start camp, learning sewing basics to get them started and making fun projects of their choice! The main focus will be to make 12 blocks for a quilt. Each day campers will work on a paper piecing block design. They will then learn how to add sashing, assemble the quilt top, have it quilted and how to bind.

Skills Campers Will Learn: 
Students will learn parts of the machine, how to thread and clean the machine, how to make a bobbin, straight stitch, reverse, zigzag. They will learn how to use a rotary cutter & mat, and more.

Projects: During this 21 week camp students can make a wide variety of projects: a pin cushion, a drawstring bag to carry all their sewing equipment, and other projects.
