Teens on Machines Camp (previously Fashion Camp) is designed for teens and tweens who are already hooked on sewing and want to take their skills and ideas to the next level!  This camp is geared towards to ages 13-18 and REQUIRES MACHINE SEWING EXPERIENCE. 

Does your teen love fashion and sewing?

Our five day camp will cover the following material:

  • Fashion design & process
  • Illustration & working drawings
  • Choosing the best fabrics for your design
  • Reading patterns
  • Measurements, pinning & cutting fabric
  • Upcycling and re-purposing
  • Garment construction
  • Finishing techniques (including hemming, zippers, button holes and working with elastics)

Skill requirements:

Fashion Camp is geared towards ages 12-17 with machine sewing experience. This includes being able to thread the sewing machine, sew straight lines & curves, back stitch and have completed several sewing projects either at home or in lessons.

No previous experience sewing clothing is required, this is your chance to get started!

Material requirements:

The use of The Makehouse Co-op's sewing pattern library is included in the cost, however students will need to bring or purchase fabrics for the clothing projects.

Students receive a 20% discount on materials purchased through The Makehouse or at Gala Fabrics. We will be asking you if your teen can shop in the store, and what their budget is. 

Teens are welcome to bring fabric from home or from elsewhere.

YOUR TEEN CAN BRING FABRIC ON THE FIRST DAY IF THEY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT THEY WANT TO MAKE. 

Equipment requirements: 

We highly encourage your child to bring their own sewing machine. However if they don't own a machine, one will be provided for them. If they bring in their machine from home, please ensure they bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord!).

Group size: Maximum 6

Snacks & Refreshments: We encourage you to send snacks and refreshments as it’s much easier to be creative when our brains have fuel!
