IMG_20140709_145138 NEW LOCATION FOR 2016 AND 2017! We will hold our summer camps at the beautiful Charlstrom House, next to St. Andrews Episcopal on Carrollton Ave.  Our camps have outgrown our Oak Street location, and there is NOT a more glamorous and stately facility to learn the art of sewing. The circle drive will be very convenient for pickup/dropoff as well!  We are so thankful to Father Jim and the kind staff at St. Andrews for entrusting us with their wonderful facilities.sewing campcircle driveway for easy drop-off

Come learn to sew during a week of fun filled activities at Sew Fabulous!  Ages 9 and up are welcome, sewing machines are provided for use during camp.  IF the camper has a working sewing machine, they are welcome to bring it to camp.  We have had many requests to accept 8 year olds, and we decided after having 8 year old campers in the past, this is not optimal.  Even if your son or daughter is academically advanced, we’ve found that 6 hours of sewing is a long time for anyone under age 9.  It is an “attention span” issue! Thanks in advance for understanding.

NEW FOR 2017- to accommodate the budding younger sewers, if your son or daughter is 8 years old, we are having for the first time ever, a “mini camp” in August that’s only 3 days . Ages 8 <or a young 9> would be perfect for this-it will be Monday, August 7th thru Wednesday, August 9th 9:30am-3:30pm.  $165 for the 3 day mini-camp.

Campers will learn how to independently thread and operate a sewing machine, while making several fun items.   Photos of some of the camp items are posted below.

Camp will run Monday-Friday, 9:30am-3:30pm.

We will be having 4 weeks of BEGINNING sewing camp this summer, max of 8 students per camp week.  The last two summers, all beginning camp weeks were totally full with a waiting list. Parents, if you have a student who wants to attend with friends, please coordinate dates as soon as possible.

BEGINNER WEEKS 2017:  June 5th, June 19th, June 26th, July 24th, and mini camp Aug. 7th-9th


Camp fee for the week is $275, this includes a lunch party on Friday and healthy snack each day.

Upon registration, we’ll email you the supply list of necessary supplies and notions each camper will need to complete the various projects. We’ll supply all the patterns, guidance, and as much of the materials as we can. HOWEVER- we received a lot of positive feedback from our students last summer about selecting their own personal fabrics for individualized sewing projects, so we’ll send you the yardage needed before camp starts. Camp is Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students will be responsible for bringing their own lunch every day (we will have a few snacks)but we will provide lunch on Friday, (last day of camp) AND the BIG fashion show will be at 3:30pm on Friday, so they can show off the items they’ve made throughout the week. To secure a space, we require a 50% deposit ($137) due upon registration, along with a completed registration form for each camper (we will email you this simple form). Remaining  balance ($138)is due BY the first day of camp.  You may also pay for the week upon registration as well, $275.  **NEW FOR 2017, I AM ALSO SET UP FOR PAYMENT VIA VENMO, IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO PAY THIS WAY, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT SEWFABULOUSNOLA@GMAIL.COM ***
