Kids are out of school, this week summer is officially starting, and so is JoLene’s Sewing Camp for Kids! This year’s lineup includes many great opportunities for kids ages 6-14. There are several options to make various stuffies or animal-themed items that are sure to bring happy smiles as flat cloth transforms into toys. Making a summer or back-to-school outfit, a matching dress set for a child and a doll, or perhaps a hoodie may be the ticket for some students who want to wear their creations. For the Harry Potter enthusiasts, there’s a camp just for you, too! Or if curling up with a handmade heart quilt sounds cozy, that’s also an option. With so many choices, there’s surely something to grab your interest. Click here to see the full list.

With a few open spots available, the time to act is now. Browse class options, make your choice, and check out, all from this page on the website. Camps are available morning or afternoon, for three weekdays in a row. This concentrated time at the machine helps kids learn quickly in a fun environment, and in just a few days they have a wonderful project (or set of projects!) to take home. For new students, a one-time-only free safety class is required and can be scheduled by contacting JoLene.

For returning students, note that all summer camps will be held in a new location: Nelson Chiropractic, 6647 Southeast Woodstock Boulevard, Portland, Oregon. Please use the back door when entering.

This looks to be an exciting summer of creativity, learning, connection, and fun. We look forward to seeing you at our new location for Summer Camp!

Happy sewing,
