Sew and Tell

Did you ever wonder how to thread a sewing machine? Sew on a button? Make a strap for bag? Design the stuffed animal of your dreams? Join us in Sew & Tell, a camp tailored for students interested in sewing. We will learn the basics of sewing, including needle threading, sketching designs, finishing seams, and how to use an iron. Campers will also have the chance to try some design through sketching ideas and turning them into reality…while making all of the choices along the way such as fabric color/pattern, accents, buttons, and more. The first week will be by hand, the second week we will explore the possibilities of sewing with machine. The camp will result in several carefully made items designed by campers to take home to use or give as a gift. Come and sew with us!

  • Kyra Fries

    Kyra Fries’ first foray into sewing was a tiny pillow she quilted with her mom when she was about seven years old. Since then, she’s explored sewing all shapes and kinds of garments, from Halloween costumes to dresses, ties to backpacks, capes to pants and everything in between. Kyra also loves knitting, crocheting, spinning (on a wheel!), calligraphy, and drawing. Mostly self taught, Kyra has also taken classes such as costume design and pattern making. When she’s not up to her ears in crafts, Kyra loves to cook and read. During the school year, she teaches English and is the Head of the Drama Department at Park. She has two daughters that spend their summers at Summer at Park and love to make their own creations too!
