+ What age group is this program designed for?
This program is designed for children ages 8+. Parents are advised to supervise their child when using tools and equipment at home, and to go through the lessons and assignments along side their child.
We have had some children who are between the ages of 5-7 join Sewing Camp and stay for the first few modules/months where we cover hand sewing techniques. This is a good option for those with younger children who are interested in sewing but are not ready to use a sewing machine.
+ What does my membership give me?
- Bi-Weekly video lessons and assignments
- A monthly "Sewing Camp" digital magazine
- A free badge per account after applying for each Sewing level
- Certificates for completing weekly assignments
- Fun bonus printables, activities, and challenges
+ How does my child earn a Badge?
Once your child has completed a level, an application form will appear that week for you to fill out and apply. Your free badge will then be mailed out to you!
+ How long does it take to earn a badge?
Each badge has 4 lessons, and each lesson has 2-4 sewing projects. Once your child has completed all 4 lessons they can earn the corresponding badge.
One lesson is released every other week, so it will take approximately 8 weeks to earn one badge.
+ Do you ship Badges internationally?
Yes we do!
+ Do I need to purchase a membership for each child in my family?
No you don't! Your membership is good for your whole family. We will send you one badge per account, but you can purchase extra badges for siblings in our secret store.
+ What supplies do I need for this program?
Each week you will be given a supply list of things you will need to purchase. Some of the one time purchases you will require are a sewing kit and a sewing machine. We go into more detail in the course about the best tools and machines to buy, and what fabrics and notions you'll be needing.
+ How long does it take to complete the program?
It takes 2 years to complete the Sewing Camp program.
+ I am not a parent, and I don't have kids, can I join?
Yes of course! But keep in mind that the lessons and projects are geared towards children. If you are okay with that then you are most welcome :). Our parents have also benefitted from the program, so I am sure you will too!
+ What if I need to cancel my membership?
No problem, if you have subscribed to the SILVER payment plan, you can cancel your membership at any time before the next month begins.
