Design Camps


If you are interested in creating garments, then Design Camp is for you!  They range from Beginner (no garment construction experience necessary), Intermediate (having some basic garment experience), and Advanced (having a good working knowledge of the basic garment techniques).


Please note that if you are interested in design camps, but do not have the requisite sewing skills, Sew Camps 1, 2, and 3 are a terrific way to learn to sew, get some experience at the machine and learn some basic techniques necessary for the design camps.  Please see our Summer Sewing page for Sew Camps.
