Sewing Classes and Camps

Playing with fabric is one of the best parts of running Red Thread -- and you can join me in the fun! I offer classes for children and adults focusing on embroidery, hand and machine sewing, making toys/stuffies, bags/pouches, clothing, home decor, quilting and patchwork... and the list is growing.

Classes (for children and grownups) are usually held on weekend afternoons, and I also run a full-day summer camp for kids aged 8-12. Classes take place in my home in the Danforth/East York neighbourhood of Toronto. I also love doing sewing parties and can do customized classes for groups. If you want to sew with me, please don't hesitate to get in touch at 

Here's what some past participants have had to say about their experience:

My daughter loved every second of the camp.‎ She came home each day eager to show us what she had created, and bubbling with enthusiasm for the next day’s activities. She proudly wore her tie-dye shirt and pajama pants. My daughter has spent every summer going to day camps in the city, and this sewing camp is absolutely one of the best.”

“I can say without hesitation that G would rate her week at your camp as one of her best life experiences ever. I am curious about what you achieved in that week. It’s fantastic that she learned how to sew by hand and with a machine, learned how to die fabric, and learned an appreciation for an art form (she talks non stop now about wanting to make a quilt). It’s even more fantastic that she found soul mates, and she feels that about every person who was there at your camp, so I know that what really happened is that you created a really beautiful group dynamic. I cannot express how grateful I am to you for this (and wonder how you did it). G can’t wait to hear about your upcoming workshops. She wants to attend every one. So please stay in touch – we are very hungry for more!”
