Ready for Summer Camp? | 2013 Edition | Sewing School

UPDATE: Looking for 2014 Summer Camps? Go to the 2014 Summer Camp Post.

The weather hasn't exactly been wintery here in North Carolina, but the long winter break with the kiddoes did make me wonder... What will we do with all that uninterrupted quality time we'll have on our hands once summer starts?

It got me thinking about Summer Camp! Okay...there was another thing that got me thinking about camp.  It was a really cool book my daughter got for Christmas called Sewing School. (She actually got 2 copies and I traded her some cute fabric for her second copy!)

Sewing School Book by Amie Plumley

After reading the book and sharing some projects with the kiddoes, they declared "Mom, you should totally do this."  And you know what, I totally agreed. 

I'll be teaching Sewing School at St. Francis of Assisi Community Center this summer.  It's open to all rising 4th to rising 8th graders (you don't need to be a parishioner).  So... if you are thinking about camp too.... here is a fun, creative summer camp in north Raleigh, NC...

Sewing School Summer Camp

We'll start with the basics (threading a needle, knots, simple stitches) and dive into easy projects on the first day - a needle holder and a pincushion.

Your child will build confidence and experience working on a new hand-sewn project each day in Sewing Camp: Monday: a pillow, Tuesday: a Small tote bag, Wednesday: a Potholder, Thursday: a Stuffed animal, Friday: a Sunglasses case. More advanced students will be able to select more elaborate projects.

Session I: July 22-July 26, 2013 9am-12pm
Session II: July 29-August 2, 2013 9am-12pm
Camp Fee: $120 parishioners;    $140 non-parishioners
Includes camp t-shirt and daily snacks
