Does anyone know of any good sewing summer camps or intensive workshops or things like that that teach students of different levels how to sew? I googled it and have found some camps that are actually wilderness camps, so they teach you how to make camp stuff like fleece vests etc., but I was more looking for a clothes camp. Maybe I could just take classes...but I love summer camp haha.

I guess it kinda depends where you are. I used to take home-ec type classes during the summer, usually 1 cooking, 1 sewing, maybe some art thing, with my cousin. I want to go to Chicago art institute this summer and learn how to design clothes maybe draft patterns and such, but it is too much money for my family at the moment. So, just keep an eye out. Some craft and sewing stores have workshops, too, I think.

karidactyl, where do you live?  i might be able to help you find something.

check with your local arts schools, they often have programs or know of programs in your area.

check with local sewing machine shops, local fabric stores, local sewing schools (obviously), and even check with community colleges, adult education programs.

call your local ASG chapter and ask them for referrals.

and if all else fails, look online for sewing classes, many of them are downloadable at your convenience so you don't have to be available when the class meets, and others have live meetings so you can have individual attention to your questions.

edited to add:  i had a little free time so i did a google search and came up with TONS of hits for "summer sewing camp".  you might try the same search and see if anything listed is of interest to you or within your traveling distance.

Hey Chicago folks -

There is an AWESOME 10-week class run out of JoAnn on Elston in Chicago (but not run by JoAnn, it's run by  a seamstress (Seamster?) who is amazing!) Seriously, class size is limited to 5 people, and you get tons of individual attention, and pick your own projects. If any of you want his name/prices/etc., PM me.

I was a complete beginner and just finished a session, and I'm so happy with everything I learned!
