Fashion & Sewing Camp Descriptions

sewnow! 100/200/FK101/222Gift Fun/399 FashionKit

These are camp versions of our optimized fashion design and sewing curriculum.  Descriptions of these classes are found under Class Descriptions. 

Every Core Summer Camp includes new FashionKit curriculum!
All of our FK programs this summer will be an immersive Fashion experience with brand new content designed to expose campers to the complete fashion design process from initial concept to finished collection.  Each week will vary in content to offer variety to those enrolled in multiple weeks of camp.  FK camps are great for kids in fourth grade and up and teens. New this year is our on-site FashionKit supply room where designers 'shop' for their patterns, fabric, and notions to complete their projects.  Sourced and curated from the Fashion District in Los Angeles, our fabrics are on-trend and deliver great results.  All supplies are included with your camp registration.

In addition to sewing your fashions, there are lots more creative activities during the week as you:

-learn fashion illustration basics and design your capsule collection that expresses who you are as a designer

-are exposed to the history of Fashion Design and Fashion Designers

-enjoy participating in mini-challenges that push your creativity and innovation

-take part in Textile Tuesdays where you create your own custom fabric to use in a project

-enjoy the included snack each day as you chill with friends new and old and explore our trends and skills library

-capture your Fashions on camera on Photo Shoot Fridays

-model your fashions on the catwalk in our August 21st end of summer fashion show

FashionKit 101 Camp - all new Pro program for beginners

We have taken everything that's great about sewnow! 101 and 201 programs and created FashionKit 101. This camp teaches you how to operate the sewing machine, safely use the iron, sketch and illustrate designs and prepares you to enjoy using our FashionKit patterns product in a subsequent camp or at home once the fun of camp is over.

During camp you will make the FashionKit Shopper tote bag, Sunday shorts, and an infinity scarf. 

Full Day: FashionKit 101
This camp will cover all the content from FashionKit 101 and then designers will move on to FashionKit projects choosing from the FashionKit library of patterns.

FashionKit Camp - access the whole FashionKit library!

Once you have graduated from FashionKit 101, you may register for any week, full day or half day of FashionKit camp. Work on any of the projects from ever expanding FashionKit library of patterns, and customize them using the innovative xyz zones.  Work at your own pace - most campers complete 3-5 projects in a week of 1/2 day programming.  Registration includes 24/7 access to FK photographic and video instructions for all of the patterns you work on during camp. During camp, instructors will guide you to the best projects for your skill level. If you'd like to learn more about our amazing sewing patterns, visit

What happened to 223 Beachwear, 251 Textile Design, and 301 Dressmaking camps?

All of these fan favorite camps are dear to our hearts, so we decided to make them available to every FashionKit camper! Textile Tuesdays will take place every week so designers can create custom textiles to incorporate in their capsule collections or their FK 101 projects. The Summer 2016 FashionKit includes new patterns perfect to customize for the beach with tons of summery fabric options.  If a feminine dress is your desire, there's also a fashionkit pattern to make a great sundress.
