Summer Fashion Camp for Kids & Tweens

2017 will be our fifth year hosting a summer camp for kids in Manhattan, NY and our fourth year hosting a sewing camp for kids in Merrick Long Island. We always have such a blast with our summer campers teaching them to design and sew their own clothes!

More info on:

As a child I would draw clothing designs, use leftover fabric and hot glue it all together to make my creations- that was until I learned how to use a sewing machine! The sewing machine opened up a whole new exciting world and I began to make my own clothes – this passion eventually led me to Parsons and later to open The Fashion Class. Learning to sew definitely had a positive impact on me when I was eight and I see how it effects our  students every day by instilling confidence and creativity – plus it’s just a lot of fun! And what better time to learn all about sewing and fashion design than a NY summer.    – Kerri, TFC Founder

Midtown Manhattan: In NYC, on W39th Street in the city’s Garment Center, we have a fully equipped loft-styled sewing studio with three classrooms. Our Fashion Camp for Children this summer is split into two distinct age groups; Summer Fashion Camp for younger Children 6-8 old and Summer Fashion Camp for Older Kids 9-12yrs. Our Kid-Campers will learn to sew real clothing on a safe and easy to use sewing machine plus create fabulous accessories and illustrate fashion! Special lessons will include styling a photo-shoot, fabric science and fashion history. Our Tween Fashion Summer Campers will also sew real clothing, design fashion, have specialized lessons (like fashion history, fabric science & tech) PLUS go on ahhmazing field trips in the garment center. Our field trips are typically within walking distance to the studio. One of my favorites is visiting designer Austin Scarlett’s showroom and workroom. Filled with sewing machines and bridal gowns are campers get to meet Austin in person (he was also on 2 seasons of Project Runway) and see his designs up close!  We also visit Mood Fabrics, FIT, The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute and so much more. In our New York City location we also host a Fashion Design Summer Camp for Teenagers ages 13-17.

Merrick Long Island: Our Merrick Sewing camp for Kids; ages 6-12 (our average age of campers is 9-10) also learn to sew real clothing using our state-of-the-art sewing machines plus illustrate fashion. Special lessons included fashion entrepreneurship, fabric science, technology in fashion and fashion history with real period costumes! Sewing is the real highlight for our campers though and they display their designs each Friday afternoon on the catwalk for parents and friends. Merrick also hosts a Sewing and Design Summer Camp for Teens ages 13-17yrs old – teen campers get to design their own clothing, shop at Mood Fabrics and learn to sketch fashion!

Our instructors in Manhattan and Merrick are professional designers who specialize in all areas of fashion and hold degrees from FIT, LIM and Parsons. Our managers and camp counselors are certified in CPR and First Aid. All supplies and transportation costs are included in the camp fee, there are no extra costs (we just ask that campers bring a lunch). Fashion Camp is a great way to spend the summer by learning to sew with other creative kids!

Roslyn Long Island: We’re now offering two weeks of half day fashion camp for kids in Roslyn NY at the Abrakadoodle Art Studio!
