Summer Sewing Camps
2-Day, 3-Day or 5-Day Camps
Sewing classes are the coolest way to spend hot summer days! Summer Camp schedules are based on the Monday-Friday calendar weeks from the first full week of June through the third week of August, with a choice of morning (9:30am-12:30pm) or afternoon (1:30-4:30pm ) sessions Camp classes are in session all summer, except for July 4.
Our only scheduling restrictions are that new students attend at least one 2-Day Camp and begin their first class early in the week, on a Monday or Tuesday.
2-Day Camp : $130
In the 2-Day Sewing Camp (Tuesdays and Thursdays), new students learn sewing machine operation/safety in the first day of , with time allowed to complete two of the three easy starter projects – a belt and a small drawstring bag. This is perfect for new students trying out sewing for the first time to see if they enjoy it enough to return for more classes.
3-Day Camp : $195
In the 3-Day Sewing Camp, new students learn sewing machine operation/safety, and complete all three of the easy starter projects – a belt and a small drawstring bag and a larger bag. Then, in any future sewing camps/classes, they may choose their next sewing projects according to their age and skill level. This camp series is designed to give new students a full orientation on sewing machine skills and basic sewing construction; they would then be ready to continue developing new skills and techniques in future sewing classes or under the supervision of an experienced adult sewer . . . And they will then be ready to enjoy the creative freedom to choose their sewing projects.
5-day Camp : $325
The 5-Day Sewing Camp series gives new students a full orientation on sewing machine skills and basic construction techniques. After completing the starter projects, they will have about two camp sessions for choosing another project. Students attending the 5-Day Camps get to experience more of the satisfaction that comes with achievement. They will have moved a little further beyond just the basic discipline for handling a sewing machine to greater appreciation for the sewing process and the creative range of the sewing arts!
New students are required to bring all notions and supplies from the Supplies List to their first camp. You are not required to purchase your supplies from Thimble Fingers; but for your convenience, we have them kitted up and available to purchase, either when you register now, or on arrival at your first class.
