Do YOU want to learn the traditional art of hand sewing?  Do you want to create your very own stuffed animals for you, family or a friend?  Join us for Hand Sewing Camp where you will learn lots of sewing skills and create fun loving stuffed animals to keep at the end of the week!

At Hand Sewing summer camp, campers learn about the basic techniques for everyday sewing. Throughout the week, campers use a wide variety of materials and colors. In addition, campers have the chance to make accessories for their stuffed animals. Campers learn how to use and improve their skills with hand sewing, measuring, cutting, stuffing, and much more! Not only will your sewing and creativity improve, but your technical skills will too!

Campers create 2-3 stuffed animals throughout the week, and the chance to create fun accessories for their stuffed animal too. Campers can make stuffed animals like a tiger, pig, gorilla, cat, dog, snake, frog, duck, horse, hedgehog, panda, walrus, turtle, polar bear and more! There are also countless options for accessories too, like a saddle for your horse, a carrot for your rabbit, a lilly pad for your frog, a tiger cub for your tiger, a banana for your gorilla, bamboo for your panda, or even a bone for your dog!

In this hands-on experience, campers have the chance to learn from an exciting and talented instructor(s). Camp discussions may include exciting topics like tips and tricks for designing accessories for your stuffed animal, small alterations with big design appeal, how to work with different types of fabric and so much more!

We will see you this summer for a very exciting week of hand sewing and fun!

Footwear:  Closed-toe shoes/sneakers are required.

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps T-Shirt and take home their stuffed animals!
