Sewing Camp August 20-24, 2018: Pillows and Pyjamas


I am offering two weeks of sewing camp this summer, with completely different themes and activities (so you can join us for one or both). Warning: sewing camp can be addictive!  

The camps take place in my home in the Danforth/East York neighbourhood of Toronto. They are ideal for kids who really want to sew! We do a variety of different activities, and build our skills quickly. Creativity is encouraged, and each child is given lots of attention and encouragement. In the afternoon we go outside and play for awhile, so there is time to move and be active to balance all the focused creative work we do each day.

Pillows and Pyjamas will be our theme from August 20-24 (5 days). We will learn basic construction techniques, machine sewing, and some hand embroidery/embellishment. Working on a large scale and a small scale in the same week, we'll enjoy the thrill of making practical and fun things we can use (pyjama pants and pillowcases), and we'll also savour the slow, focused work of hand embroidery, making our creations extra special. This week is sure to build up everyone's sewing and design skills while having lots of fun and being super creative, while making things we can use and enjoy every day. You send a lunch, and I provide snacks and all materials/supplies. Ages 8-14, $420 + HST. 

You can sign up online here, or contact me directly at Either way, I will contact you with a more detailed registration form. Space is very limited, so if you are interested please contact me ASAP.
