Summer Sewing Camps 2021!


Welcome to

we're glad you're here.


We are offering over 20 camps this summer!


Common Thread Claremont offers a variety of summer sewing camps for kids ages 8-18.

ALL CAMPS ARE OPEN TO BOYS AND GIRLS.  If your student is new to the studio and a beginning sewist, we have a variety of LEVEL 1 camps where they master the basics and make fun projects! LEVEL 1 Camps:  #1, #5, #6, #11, #12, #13, #16 & #17!

Students interested in Fashion Design and Costuming can take our LEVEL 2 camps for intermediate to advanced sewists. Camps #15 (Fashion Camp) or #11 (Choose Your Project Camp) are great or we have lots of themed camps that feature patterns from independent pattern designers!


Do you have a Crafty Camper who is too young and can’t wait until they’re 8? Join our Mini-makers Camp #1 where we will be making a chandelier made of PomPoms OR Camp #12, where the theme is My American Girl Doll Camp.


We’ve added Camp #13 JUST BOYS! Where we will be starting with the basics and make a drawstring bag for Legos, or any other fun collections!



Details: Instruction, Supplies, etc.

Our camps provide a positive, fun, and safe environment where kids can learn a valuable, life-long skill; gain self-confidence; explore their creative side, and feel pride in their completed projects and accomplishments! 


We provide all supplies: sewing machines, thread, fabric, iron, notions, patterns, and more! Students are also welcome to bring their own patterns and fabric.

Camp Registration

Our summer camps typically sell out each year. Please register early to make sure you have a spot. If you have any questions, please email:

If you are a new student to the studio, please email or bring your completed Waiver form with you on the first day of camp. Full payment is required with registration to secure your spot. You can find the Waiver here: 




Refund Policy

We have a NO-REFUND policy and we would like to encourage you to simply move to another week of camp depending upon availability so your child can have the experience of learning to sew. We understand that things come up and you may need to switch camp weeks or cancel altogether. To do so, please call or email to let us know.



If there is a week of camp you’d like your child to attend and it is full, please let us know and we will put your child on a waitlist. Even though it is rare that we get cancellations, we do get students that need to change their week of camp from time to time. We know that the uncertainty of the waitlist is inconvenient so we do our best to communicate with you through email updates.
