Kids’ Classes and Camps

Kids’ Classes and Camps

Silk Road Textiles is proud to offer kids’ classes and summer camps! Our talented staff has years of experience teaching children, and we love to help give them the tools to create their artistic visions.  Kids’ classes at Silk Road Textiles are all project based, so in addition to learning new skills and techniques, you walk away with a finished item to show off and use.  Registration is open, and spots go quickly, so call 541-3700 or stop in today to ensure you get to participate.  We limit our classes to no more than 6 kids, so you know you’ll get the attention and help you need to learn a lot and have a lot of fun!

Below is the full calendar of kid’s events for summer 2019. Keep scrolling for a list of classes and project pictures!

Kids’ Beginning Sewing (Ages 8+)
Cost: $25 includes all supplies
with Gay Volz
Skill Level:  No Experience Necessary 

Tue. 9/17 AND 9/24  4:15-5:30PM

If you have never taken a sewing class at Silk Road Textiles, this class is required before taking any other kids’ or teens’ sewing classes. Each section is a two-day class where students will learn to use and care for a sewing machine. Covered topics include properly threading the needle, winding a bobbin, sewing a straight line, selecting stitch patterns, and good sewing habits. During the class we will all make pincushions that can be used throughout other sewing classes. If time permits, we may also make geometric pillows. You are welcome to bring your machine from home or use one of ours – just let us know when you register which you’d prefer. Required Reading: All the projects in our kids’ entry level sewing classes come from A Kid’s Guide To Sewing by Sophie Kerr. If you do not already own a copy of this book, you will need to purchase one to participate in our classes.

KSC: Camp Out
Cost $45 + supplies
with Gay Volz
Skill Level: Beginner

Tue. 10/1, 10/8, 10/15 AND 10/22 4:15-5:30PM

In this two-part class, students will learn to make a headband and a zippered pouch. This class is designed for kids with basic sewing skills who know how to use a sewing machine.  All students must have taken Kids Intro to Sewing at SRT prior to this class. They will expand their skills, learning to install a zipper and to make a casing and insert elastic. A great way to practice those sewing skills.
