All Sewn Up
Enjoy learning to sew step by step while you create wonderful items on your new sewing machine, which you will use on the project and then take home to keep! From day one you’ll be working on projects to include a pillowcase, tote bag, flannel pajama pants, and other fun projects! As the week progresses, so will your skills, and you may have the opportunity to create an additional project for a family member or friend, as well as to learn about environmentalism and social justice through sewing. The cost of this project includes patterns and materials for the projects and sewing machine so that students will be able to continue their adventure with sewing long after our project is complete.
Sewing is a life skill that everyone can use! Each participant will need a great attitude, a willingness to learn useful new skills, patience, and a helping attitude, as we’ll all be helpers during this project. Each participant will need to work diligently throughout the week and not be afraid to make mistakes and learn from them.
Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines. Participants should only attend illness free. If a participant should test positive for COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick them up at their current location. The family will bear all the costs associated with the student pick up.
By selecting the above project, you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects. This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or if your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
