Summer Sewing Camp at Modern Domestic

Drafting Skirt

This summer has been full of amazing classes for adults, teens, and kids. The day time hours have been mostly occupied by children and teens ages 8-17 whipping up darling projects and learning some great skills. There is nothing quite like watching Shelly Figueroa working in a full classroom of 6 young people; she easily handles different projects, learning styles, ages, and abilities. We have taken to calling her the “Marry Poppins” of sewing because of her grace and charm with both the youth and their parents week after week.

Shelly Teaching

In the kid and teen sewing classes at Modern Domestic, kids make projects like envelope pillows, pajama pants, tote bags, summer tunics, a-line skirts, capris, and more. It seems the kids that we have just can’t get enough and keep coming back to sew and take more classes week after week. We have added some more August sessions and a new Project Runway Skirt class where students will get to make as many as three skirts, work with knits, and do some pattern design.

Students Project Planning

Also, we have a few more non-sewing and all ages classes that have been added to the schedule for summer. There is a session of Intro to Surface Design that is all ages, as well as the Bird Mobile class. Susanna Scott is going to get teens silkscreening in a Silk Screen Tote Bag class.

While the regularly scheduled classes at Modern Domestic are for students 18 and up, the class offerings for kids, teens, and all ages just keep growing and growing.

    Hi Rebecca, Any of the Kids Sewing Classes would be great for your child. The kid classes are for ages 8 and up. The regular classes, including the beginning sewing classes, are for adults. You can find the list of kid classes on the class page of the website under the category list on the left part of the page. Please feel free to call if you would like any further direction.
