KIDS KAMPS are scheduled.

June 5-9, 2017   Kids Kamp I --  This is a beginning Kamp where the Kids learn some hand sewing, needle felting, and machine sewing.  It is required for any future Kamps unless the Kid has previous sewing experience. Cost $135.00 inclusive.  Age 8+

June 12-16, 2017  Kids Kamp III --  This is advanced sewing.  A garment will be made.  Cost $100.00 and will require purchase of pattern, fabric and notions.

All Kamps are Monday thru Friday,  10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Kids should bring a sack lunch each day and a snack to share with the others 1day.  On Friday I take the Kids to Dairy Queen in the afternoon for a mini blizzard, my treat.   Kamp size is limited to 4 Kids.
