We Love Summer Camp


Today was the first day of Little Stitchers summer camp at Intown Quilters and I couldn’t be happier.

This is the first time I’ve offered a camp for kids younger than 11. All my other camps (and the camps done by another teacher) are aimed at older kids. Inevitably, we get calls about things younger kids can do and have to turn them away.

After the fun we had with Miss L’s birthday party, I started brainstorming a camp for younger kids. All the projects involve hand sewing and each project builds on the skills from the previous projects.

Obviously I had to sign up Miss L, who has been disappointed that she’s not old enough for my other camps. She and two other students arrived bright and early this morning for the first three-hour camp day.

And they loved it.

Miss L is showing off the nametag she stitched up this morning. (Isn’t that fabric so cool? It’s by Timeless Treasures and has some great school coordinates.)

It was awesome to watch the girls work, contentedly sewing and then grinning broadly as they finished.

I have the best job EVER.

  1. Hey Mary,
    I have been using your book, “Little Girls, big style.” I love it. I opened it up last night to begin my 3 1/2 year old’s Easter outfit. I could not find my skirt pattern page. I have not used this one yet and was wondering if you could send me another one. I can take a picture of my book and myself if you would like. I could also send some pics of the pants that I have made.
    Let me know if this is ok with you.
