If your child wants to learn how to sew and you don’t have the time or knowledge, this class is for them! We teach students the basic fundamentals of the sewing machine and how to sew a straight seam. (We use our sewing machines – please don’t bring yours).
Children choose their own fabric (front and backing) for this class. Fabrics for the front of the quilt will need to be purchased and cut before class. If you wish, a teacher will cut the fabric for you for a $5 fee. If we are cutting for you, we will need the fabric at least one week before class begins. If you do your own cutting, be sure you cut accurately for your kid’s success.

Graduates of Kids Kamp will choose their own fabrics for this quilt and pillowcase. We will build on previously learned skills and aim toward an accurate ¼” seam allowance and rows that are the same length. They will also read a simple pattern to determine the order pieces are sewn together.

3rd Times a Charm Kamps

Monday – Thursday, June 3 – June 6, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
It’s a pillow – NO – it’s a quilt – NO – it’s a Magic Pillow Quilt! This project features an Ohio Star pillow that is attached to a quilt. When the quilt is folded and tucked inside, it transforms into a pillow. What fun to take to a sleep-over or on a trip. Choose your own fabrics to make a stripy quilt and pillow for an item that is uniquely your own. In addition, we will make a cute quilted, zippered bag. What fun!
Modern Hand Embroidery
Monday – Wednesday, July 1 – July 3, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Hand Embroidery is coming back, and you will find many hours of enjoyment learning some basic stitches. We will start with your initials and add some flair of your own. Class does require a kit. Finished project will be a small 8” pillow.
Monday – Friday, July 15 – July 19, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Have some fun making your own gemstone blocks using snowball corners. Some are solid and some are 4-patched to give two different looks to your blocks. Put together in a staggered set with some rectangles and you have a modern look that makes your gems shine.
Advanced Kids Kamp
These classes teach advanced sewing techniques. It’s very important that you have mastered the 3rd Times a Charm level before enrolling in these classes. Students need approval from the teachers and must be 11 or older.
Beginning Hand Piecing
Monday – Friday, July 29 – August 2, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Hand piecing is a relaxing alternative to sewing by machine. It’s also portable, making it possible for you to sew anytime, anywhere. In this class we’ll cover the basics of piecing a quilt by hand. We’ll spend the first three days sewing by hand. If you wish you can continue at home, but it’s not required. On Thursday you’ll finish up your quilt top by machine and on Friday you’ll use the machine to quilt and bind your quilt. Please join us as we share this relaxing art!
