Kids Camp 2015

This year was our 4th annual Kids Camp.  It ran from July 13-17.  Kids Camp is a week long sewing day camp that Quilters Anonymous hosts.  We teach kids, 10 yrs+ how to sew, and they make several cute projects in the process!  We have 2 sessions, 9a-Noon and 1p-4p. This year we had 15 kids in each session, many of them repeats from previous years. This year I got to volunteer all day, every day.  I loved it!

Here are the projects they made.

Needlecase/Pin Caddy

Microwave Cozy - I actually taught this class. A tutorial will be coming soon!
Zippered Pouches

Rail Fence Pillow Sham

Fabric Basket - This was a bonus project for the quick finishers. Most of the kids made one!

Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless!

A Thread for Life
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.- Romans 12:6-8 NIV

  1. Thanks for being a volunteer! Is is so important. Those kids have a great time and learned great skills! They sure did great jobs!!

  2. I LOVE ALL OF THIOSE!! :-) I bet they had so much fun!! question is, How do I put in an order for the fabric baskets? I would LOVE to have a few of those for my smaller crochet projects. I can easily put a skein of yarn and the hat or scarf that is being worked on and the needle in that! Let me know Z!! I LOVE THESE!! And I would even get a few for my crochet friends here!!

  3. Such cute projects...great work!

  4. That sewing room was really humming! How fun to be able to sit and sew with the kids for a week! And what a great lineup of projects. God's blessings to you!

  5. Zenia, what a wonderful experience that must have been, and what a positive post (love the Thread for Life, so gosh darn true)! I have wanted to teach sewing but never had or made the opportunity. Something to put on my "eventual-to-do" list! Also, girl you style such nice photos (the pillow shams with the popcorn, too cute!)

  6. What a great idea. I'm sure you had just as much fun as the kids did.

  7. What a thrill to spread the joy of sewing! The memories will stay with the kids for life.

  8. What a great camp! Wish we had something like that here! My kid would listen more to someone else than she does me lol!

  9. I would love to do this. I want to start my own sewing club.
    I know this was really really fun.
    My oldsters are sucking the energy out of me.
    I love you Zenia, you are an angel
