This class is geared toward children 8-14 that are new to machine sewing or that need a refresher. All the basics are covered. Use of Granary Sewing machines and tools during class time, and all materials are included in the fee. Children will begin with a basic sewing machine tutorial and then be guided through making progressively more complicated projects that build basic skills. The projects are suitable for (and we have fabric for) all genders and ages. Repeating students can choose new projects to sew.

Students may enroll in this camp multiple times. We have a very large variety of projects and repeating students can choose new/differnt projects to sew.

In addition to excellent guidance and instruction, children will receive a project box of their own, a basic sewing tool kit, and materials to make all projects. Note: Needles, scissors, and irons are used in class so very minor injuries are possible. Children are supervised at all times and we go over all safety rules at the beginning of each session. We expect children to have good listening skills, good self-control, and the ability to follow directions.

During class they will learn sewing machine basics; safety, how-to thread the machine, how to sew straight lines. They will learn how-to read a basic pattern, cut out pattern pieces, pin pattern pieces to fabric and cut out, as well as finishing techniques including making a casing and hemming. Projects may include making a pillowcase, gift bag, drawstring bag, zipper bag, and coasters (and many others).

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. They will need sharp fabric scissors and a sewing machine to finish the projects at home.

 Meets for five consecutive days, for 3 hours a day -  includes a 15 minute snack break each day. Bring a snack and a drink. If your child tends to get cold, please send them with a sweater.

Children are supervised at all times. Class sizes vary from 4-14 students with 1-2 instructors. We use standard adult tools and some are sharp. Children will receive a pair of pointed, sharp thread-snips in their sewing tool kit in addition to pins and needles to take home.

Parents cannot attend class or wait inside the shop for kids in class. 

Children may attend multiple sessions of this class.
