Join Sketch and Sew at home now!
Spend a fantastic week at sewnow! fashion studio learning fashion design and sewing! We offer specialty camps incorporating pro fashion sewing skills, illustration, fun group challenges, and textile design.
With our FashionKit patterns product, all campers can now work at their own pace from a wide variety of patterns and styles that can be customized to their own unique point of view. Now it's easy to join friends with varying sewing skills during the same week of camp. Amazing digital instructions allow each student a personal self paced learning experience supplemented by our professional team of highly qualified instructors.
Back again this year is our sewnow! Pro Shop fabric and supplies room where each camper can browse to select FashionKit patterns, fabric, notions, and guidance as to which next project is perfect for them. As always, each camper enjoys a personal sewing station including a high quality Brother Sewing Machine, professional tools, worktable space, and an environment that promotes friendship, learning, and self expression. Come and join us - we are going to have a blast! All supplies, participation and guest tickets for the fashion show as well as a daily snack are included with your camp registration.
Please register as early as you possibly can to avoid disappointment. Many time slots sell out early, and we are really sad when we aren't able to accommodate designers excited about joining us. Sometimes we are able to shift things around to add a spot in a given camp, so please email or call us if your chosen week is full. We always keep a waitlist and sometimes spots do open up. An added bonus for early registration is that you take advantage of early bird promo pricing!
How do sewnow! camps work?
All of our FK programs are an immersive Fashion experience with 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. Designers learn about budgeting and planning in the sewnow! ProShop where they '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 designers:
Learn fashion illustration basics and design a capsule collection that expresses who you are as a designer
This camp teaches you how to operate the sewing machine, safely use the iron, sketch and illustrate designs. Introduction to serger skills are taught and you learn how to use our FashionKit patterns instructions so you can sew 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 campers will move on to more FashionKit projects later in the week.
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 2 - 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 fashionkit.co
