Celebrating 10 Years of Sewing Camp at Little Stitch Studio

Our camps are loads of fun for children and teens ages 7-16! At Little Stitch Studio, we specialize in sewing and fashion design, with lessons that are age appropriate and hands on!

Imagine learning about fashion history by touching actual garments and accessories from each decade of the 20th Century, sewing your own real and wearable clothing, learning to draw fashion illustrations, and creating inspiration boards. A week of camp at Little Stitch Studio is an unforgettable experience!

 Projects change weekly and are designed with kids and teens in mind.

Registration is on a first come first serve basis. If there is a camp that you would like to register your child for and it is full, there is a waitlist box on each camp listing.  Click on that box to have your name added to the list.

SUMMER CAMP DETAILS AND FAQ'S

All camps are open to ages 7+ unless otherwise stated in the camp description.  Teen Camps and classes are for ages 12-18.  Students are divided into groups based on their age and sewing experience.  The number of projects completed is based on sewing ability, time management, and ability to focus.
Fashion camps are beginner friendly, but new students will need to attend a Beginner Sewing Workshop before camp begins. The Beginner Sewing Workshop is designed to teach the basics of sewing; including how to use the sewing machine, how to pin and cut fabric, and how to maintain a consistent seam allowance. If your child has sewn with me before, in weekly classes or in previous summer camps, they will not need to register for the workshop unless they feel that they would benefit from a refresher.
The Beginner Sewing Workshops are held monthly on Saturday afternoons and throughout the summer to make it an easy add-on to camp.
Camps are held from 9:30 AM-3 PM, Monday-Friday. Camps are drop-off only. Pick-up and drop-off will be at the door.
Early drop-off: 9am (=$10 per day). For those that use the Early Drop-off option, camp does not officially begin until 9:30. Campers are welcome to bring a book, quiet activity, or socialize with other campers during this time.
Fashion Camp begins at 9:30 AM (with an early drop off option at 9AM)
We will start the day with a warm welcome, a fun activity and a lesson before beginning our projects. The rest of the morning will be spent on sewing. Around Noon, we will break for lunch and some fun games. After lunch, we will work on Fashion Illustration and then spend the rest of the afternoon with some fun and hands-on lessons on topics such as textile science, fashion history, entrepreneurship and color theory.
The number of projects complete is dependent on the student's skill level, ability to focus, and follow through with instruction. Projects include wearable clothing and accessories such as tops, skirts, dresses, shorts and bags.
*PROJECT COMPLETION AND SUPPLIES While I do my best to ensure the projects are completed during camp, it is ultimately up to the student how they choose to spend their class time. I supply the materials and supplies for most projects. There are occasions when a student would like fabric that I do not carry. In that case, they are welcome to shop for a fabric of their choosing and bring to class.
Camps are limited to 6 students each, with both a lead teacher and an assistant teacher, ensuring lots of individual attention.
If you would like to set up a payment plan, please contact Little Stitch Studio to register, and pay the deposit of $100. You will need to download and fill out the Auto billing credit card authorization form, to set up a monthly payment plan. All balances must be paid on or before Thursday, May 30, 2024.
Please know that we are reserving this space and time for your child. Our camps are very small and often have a waiting list of students who would love to participate. Since sewing camps are quite supply intensive, I begin purchasing fabric and supplies months in advance. In the presence of this, we have a strict refund policy for cancellations and no-shows. Camp cancellation Policy: Any cancellations before May 10, 2024 will be refunded, less $100 deposit. There are no refunds for cancellations after May 10, 2024.
Due to the nature of Summer Camps, I do not offer make-up classes or reschedule for any missed days and do not refund/give credit for missed days. No credit/monetary refund will be given for missed days and it cannot be transferred to private lessons, group or after school classes. No exceptions. No refund will be given to camper who is dismissed due to misbehavior.
Campers should bring a lunch, snack, and a bottle of water. I do have a small refrigerator if they should need to store anything perishable. Please let me know if your child has food allergies. Additionally, campers may bring a book or other quiet activity for class breaks. All project materials are included in camp fees. Students are provided a sewing machine and all tools, supplies and notions that they will need to complete their projects.
All camps are limited to 6 students each. Students will have dedicated supplies and sewing machines to use throughout camp. To help keep everyone safe (and clean!) the bathrooms, supplies and machines are sanitized each day. There is an air purifier in the studio and ceiling fans running at all times.
