Fashion Makeover, Ages 12-18

We will then spend the 8 days of camp creating something new and amazing. Instructors will spend the week helping campers learn how to alter, remake, and accessories their outfit. Some sewing machine experience is preferred – at least a week of Machine camp or Sew Fun 101 is useful for being successful in this camp.
