Looking for a productive activity for your kids this summer? Consider registering them for a summer sewing camp at your local sewing store.

Babylock is sponsoring a kids’ program called, “Summer Kids’ Clubhouse.” This program offers three, one week series’ in which the students make fun projects like a pillow case, beach bag, water bottle holder, a quilted tote, jewelry holder and a backpack.

These classes not only teach kids how to sew but also other valuable skills such as, “hand-eye coordination, math skills, following instructions, creativity and building self-esteem.”

Read more about the Summer Kids’ Clubhouse program and be sure to ask your local Babylock dealer if they are participants.

Does your local sewing store offer kids’ summer sewing camps?

    I have a sewing school, The Sew Simply Academy,, in Black Mountain, North Carolina. I have summer sewing camps for kids ages 9-teen every summer. Love these ideas for projects! How can I get the directions for them? I have a Baby Lock serger we use in our classroom.

    thank you,

    Oh Waechter's Fine Fabrics in Asheville NC has SewWOW camp for girls 9+ yrs. and up to teach them everything about sewing starting with a pillow case, to sun dying fabric, applique, making a skirt (most of the girls pick ball fringe for the bottom) it's the most exciting week! For all the family...last year they started having SewWOW camp for sewing diva's...those who are more advanced....making slacks, pj bottoms and the list goes on!
    Taking names and filling up fast! just go to their web site to learn more:

    Happy Sewing!

    Such a good idea - I'm teaching some children to sew at the moment, it would amaze you how quickly they pick things up. It's lovely to see the sense of achievement when they make something with their own hands.
