Tweens Camp - Beginning Hand Sewing & Crafts - Ages 8 and up

Tweens Camp - Beginning Hand Sewing & Crafts - Ages 8 and up

This week-long class is geared toward children 8-14 that are new to hand sewing or that need a refresher. All the basics are covered. Children will explore a variety small hand sewing projects from making stuffed felties, embroidery, embellishing small pouches, and other small craft projects. All materials are included in the fee. We have projects for all genders and all ages, so gather siblings, cousins friends and come enjoy this fun week-long class.

We recommend children take this class before machine sewing to become familiar with using scissors to cut fabric and working with needle and thread.

In addition to excellent guidance and instruction, children will receive a project box of their own, a basic hand sewing/embroidery tool kit, and materials for all projects. Projects range in size from 2-1/2" x 3" to 6" x 8".

During class they will learn how to read a pattern, cut out pattern pieces, pin pattern pieces to felt and cut out, prepare the thread and needle, as well as basic hand stitches (straight-stitch, whip-stitch, blanket-stitch). They will learn to stuff their creations, sew on a button, add embellishments, features, and letters to their creations. We have dozens of feltie patterns to choose from for all ages and genders. In addition, they will learn some basic embroidery stitches and make a monogram wall hanging. They will also learn several ways to embellish pre-made zipper pouches with iron-on fabrics. They will also make some small bead and felt bowls and do a little diamond painting!

Since students work at their own pace, some may not completely finish all their projects during class time, but they can take their project patterns and materials home with their sewing tool kit. Household scissors and sharp fabric scissors to finish the projects at home.
