|Are you ready to cut and sew your old clothes into something new and special? In this one week camp from Monday March 25 - Friday March 29th we will be taking the theme of renewal to the next level. Learn how to renew your old or unwanted clothes into creative fashion-forward pieces. Students will start with the fundamentals of sewing by hand and then learn the fundamentals of using a sewing machine, and sewing terminology.
|Bring garments you already have and transform them into something special by adding or cutting away fabric, switching out buttons, or changing the silhouette... the possibilities are endless! The week will finish on Friday with a fashion show to strut your stuff on the runway for family and friends. To sign up for after care, click here.
