We were sad to end our first week of Spring Break Camp last Friday. We had a good time with the four girls who were in attendance and since the group was kind of small we were able to go on a field trip to Hancock Fabrics in the middle of the week. Every girl made an awesome garment of their choice and plenty of other things were created, including pillows, headbands and scarves, organizers, stuffed animals and hats.
We WERE full ever week and had filled up so fast I was getting a lot of emails from disappointed moms who wanted to get their daughters into summer sewing camp. So, I figured out a way to handle taking 9 girls per week like I used to do instead of the 6 that I had capped it at. The reason for decreasing the # of girls per week is because our new studio space on the 2nd floor is a bit smaller than the space we had on the 1st floor. Well, I realized that the girls who are having their turn at doing crafts while the other girls sew (they rotate throughout the day) can do their crafting in the FUN ZONE on the first floor! This way there is room for everybody and we can have 9 girls just like previous years. There will be a teacher dedicated to working with the crafters in the FUN ZONE. YAY! So, if you missed it before now is your chance to get your daughter signed up!
Look at the lovely pillows these women made in the Beginner’s Sewing Workshop! They had never sewn on a sewing machine before and they made these pillows during their first 2 hour workshop. Why not make a New Year’s resolution to learn how to sew this year? The first Beginner’s Workshop has been scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 25th at 2:00PM.
