SEWING CAMP 2 • Sashiko Tote, July 10-14 (1-4 pm) Monday-Friday$250.00
In this camp kids will learn the fun of decorative hand stitching in the traditional Japanese sashiko style. Sashiko is a running stitch made with a long needle and is often introduced by following pre-printed stitch patterns on cotton fabric. Once the sashiko is done, we will incorporate that stitched fabric panel into a darling tote bag. This camp is best suited for kids over 8 who already have some basic sewing machine familiarity. We recommend starting with SEWING CAMP 1.
