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 sometimes adults) focusing on embroidery, hand and machine sewing, making toys/stuffies, bags/pouches, clothing, home decor, quilting and patchwork... and the list is growing.

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 dye 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 soulmates, 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!”

"Thank you so much... M had an absolutely wonderful time. I hope this is the beginning of a lifetime enjoying sewing (coming from a mother whose sewing limit is a button)."

"Great, great thanks for a terrific week. G loved spending the week with you in your supportive and lovely energy."

"Tonight before bed R (who has worn his pj shorts to bed two nights in a row) said "These are my favourite pyjamas ever!" shortly followed by "can I do sewing camp next year?'" He got an affirmative on that one, as you can imagine! He had said earlier that his favourite camps ever were "soccer and sewing." Adorable!

It was such a great experience for them both!"
