Not sure what to do with your kiddos during spring break? Send them to The Cotton Farm to sew! We will be using one of our favorite books, "Dolly: the Sweet Book of Doll Projects To Sew and Love" to make treat bags, a tote bag, and a cute little doll. Students will learn applique, embroidery, toy making techniques and sharpen their basic sewing skills.
Students will need to bring their own sewing machine to this class. If you need to rent one from The Cotton Farm, please let us know at the time of registration. Rental machines are limited and are on a first come, first served basis.
Price includes the book, a doll stuffing kit (polyester fiberfill, buttons and embroidery floss) and instruction, all materials need to be purchased ahead of time. Students will receive 10% off their class supplies at The Cotton Farm.
This is a beginner friendly camp, we welcome sewists of all skill levels.
