No experience is necessary! We love teaching new students how to sew; each fashion class, camp, party and workshop begins with a lesson on safely using the sewing machine!

Yes! Fashion is universal. Boys and girls are welcome.
In a sewing class students begin using sewing machines on day one. Instructors will teach the class how to safely use and thread a machine, and sew garments. Our sewing classes also cover how to hand sew, use simple patterns and measuring. By the end of the camp, students will make an article of clothing or an accessory that they can take home and actually wear.
We encourage independent learning and like to create a class setting with minimum distractions from parent presence. We encourage parents to attend our end of term showcase where students can share their projects and newfound skill.
We use a Brother® CE1125PRW Computerized Sewing Machine, as well as basic sewing tools.
We assign a learning exercise from our Form 2 Fashion workbook or offer open studio time for them to choose an easy sewing project of their choice.
