We're so glad you're joining us this summer for Sewing Camp! We've got unique skill-building projects every week designed specifically for children in mind! Grab your favorite child, grandchild, neighbor, niece or nephew and work together on great projects ALL summer long!

Check back each Monday for the newest project and hop in on the fun! After you've made your project, post a photo on Instagram using #janomecamp18 so we can see! At the end of the summer (August 13th, 2018 to be exact) we'll randomly choose several winners from those that have tagged and shared their camp projects on Instagram!

*We understand that the privacy of your kids is extremely important! No need to include a full photo of a minor, or their name if you don't want to, we just want to see what fun camp projects you stitch up.* 

ONE winner will win a Janome MOD-30 sewing machine + other winners will win a variety of sewing related items.
