Camp Stitch - Fun and Fabulous Bags Kids Summer Sewing Camp

Learn to sew this summer at Camp Stitch! Continue building on skills learned from a previous session, or just jump right in and as we teach campers everything they need to know to make fun and fabulous bags.

Led by Kristen Takakuwa, who has been teaching sewing to kids and adults for over 8 years, we provide a supportive, fun, and stress-free atmosphere for exploring adventures in sewing. Just like learning to ride a bike, learning to sew is a life skill your camper will never forget.

During camp, students will learn everything they need to know to make a fabric bag. We will cover all of the bag making basics including how to use a sewing machine, fabric selection, design layout and bag fabrication. Students will leave camp with their very own bag and the confidence to take on more complicated projects.

At Hello Stitch, campers will have access to our sewing machines and tools. We will also provide all supplies needed for the camp projects. All your camper has to do is show up, be ready to learn and have fun! Independence in sewing can open the door to endless creative opportunities for your camper. This camp is available to kids in 4th through 8th grade.

drop off and pick up information

Please be courteous and pick up your camper on time. We charge a late pick-up fee of $20.00 per hour pro-rated to the nearest half hour. All late payments must be provided upon arrival and paid directly to the teacher.

After-care from 3-5pm can be arranged for $150/week with a 3 student minimum enrollment. Contact us if you're interested!

How to prepare

At Hello Stitch, your camper will be provided with all the tools they need for the week. That includes a sewing machine! We will also provide a choice of project materials and threads.

Do you own your own domestic home sewing machine and would like your child to learn how to use it? If it is in good, working order, you are welcome to bring it to camp! If you have the owner's manual, please send it along with your machine.

Additional Notes

We will provide a yummy, healthy morning snack,* but camper's will need to bring their own lunch every day except for Friday, when we will have a pizza party!

*Please let us know in advance about any food allergies.
