Step Into Sewing (Audrey Oberman) This project-based 3 hour class will start with the basics so no experience is needed! Campers will work at their own individual pace and may choose from several smaller projects like a needle book and pincushion and then work on a larger project throughout the week, or a mixture of both! They will learn how to thread machines, sew straight seams and iron them, as well as some different techniques for finishing seams, and how to add closures (snaps, buttons, zippers, ties) to projects. More experienced campers may choose to learn how to cut from a pattern and make a simple garment such as pajama pants. Our 1st week will cover our “Sew Into Sleepovers” theme: lavender sachet, pajama pants, duffle bag and pillow case/decorated pillow (as time allows). Our 2nd week will be our “Stichin’ Kitchen” theme: apron, potholders, napkins, decorated placemat that can have some quilting, strip weaving and fancy stitching. The 3rd week is “Sew Back to School” theme, which will involve making bookmarks, key chains, pencil pouch with zipper, lunch & snack bags! So fun! FOR THIS LAST WEEK: New children: will work on the basics and pick special projects and team up with the experts. Returning children: will be able to continue with what they heave learned, re-make favorites. NEED: labeled water bottle, snack, lunch and shopping bag to hold projects. Helpful if camper has own NAME-LABELED sewing machine, sewing box, but not required. Ikea has a great machine for $60 if you are looking to invest in one before or after camp.
