Our premier summer sewing & fashion design program offers hands-on lessons on the principles of sewing like how to use a sewing machine, fabric layout, pinning, and cutting as well as principles of fashion illustration and fashion design. Campers will also work on hand sewing skills, crafting such as embroidery, weaving, etc. Students progress throughout the week as they move up in skill level based on our curriculum.  

Campers get to choose from over 30 projects during the week long session ranging from totes, to pillows, and garments if they are experienced sewers! In our design studio campers will  learn the basics of fashion rendering and illustration, as well as learning fun facts about famous fashion designers and fashion history. Campers will culminate the week by creating draped designs in our design challenge!

Developed by professional New York-based designers, our sewing and fashion design curriculum has been tailored to the needs of our students. Our camp aims to teach children valuable skills and aids in development of fine motor skills, problem solving, teamwork, focus and patience. All skill levels are accepted, so sign up your little maker or fashionista today!
