Summer sewing classes for kids

Students working on a sewing project.

In summers past, I hosted a series of week-long sewing camps at Stitch N Quilt in Mableton. We had a great run, but business has changed due to COVID and Miss Pat recently informed me there would be no more kid’s sewing classes and camps ~ only classes and workshops for adults.

When one door closes…another one usually opens.

I’ve been invited to teach kid’s classes at a shop on the north side of Atlanta. I’ll post details here once everything has been sorted out. One important change for students interested in following me to the new location: you’ll need to provide your own sewing machine for classes. The shop has a limited number of machines available for rent should you need one.

If you live on the west side of ATL (think I-20 and going toward Alabama), the Southeast Quilt & Textile Museum is hosting quilt camps for rising 3rd graders through high school students. Cost is very reasonable and you get your own mentor for the entire week. Camps are in June and July. Visit their website (linked above) for complete details.

Friends, neighbors and coworkers (and their kids) are welcome to come stitch with me in my Smyrna studio this summer. We can sew/craft al fresco or in studio, supervised by Sadie, of course. Sessions will last 1.5-2 hours. We will probably meet in the afternoon, exact time TBD. Text, call or email if you’d like more information.

Only 9 more sleeps (and 600+ student device returns to process) until the school year ends and summer sewing season officially begins! We can do this!
