Kind words from our parents:
Thank you for another great week at summer sewing camp. It continues to bring a lot of joy and pride to Parker and it’s the highlight of her summer. I really appreciate you having this camp and for being such a positive force in the lives of young girls to create, design and push themselves. Lara, 2016
Emily absolutely enjoyed herself! She was so so happy every day and woke up early and dressed and ready to head out. I could really sense the great enthusiasm she had all week. Loved seeing the photos of her working. Thank you for letting my Emily benefit from your camp. I am so grateful. I see now that she genuinely loves sewing and creating. She isn't excited about sports but I see a spark in her eye about sewing that I haven't seen before.
Thank you for providing this wonderful camp that my daughter enjoyed so much! I am excited to help nurture her creative spirit! Samantha, 2016
I can't thank you enough for offering this camp!! Bella had an absolutely wonderful time, and of course wants to come back next year! I am so impressed with what you were able to teach her in such a short time, the projects she brought home...even the fabrics were lovely! I'm so grateful that you are willing to facilitate this impressive camp, open up your home, and share your talent with the students. Thank you so very much for your hard work! I'm planning to send Bella back next year, and her younger sister with her! Thank you for a wonderful week full of creativity, new skills, and sewing! You blessed us both! Kirstin, 2016
I just wanted to thank you for Caroline's camp experience this year. Each day she came out with such a sparkle of pride in her eyes. It was so refreshing! I cannot even begin to express how much fun she had and the talk of next summer already! I'm not sure what kind of magic went on in that house everyday, but I am sure glad she got to be a part of it. ;) She brought that excitement home everyday with her. Thanks for such a positive experience. Amy, 2016
