Dream of being a Fashion Designer?

Come join us for a weeklong adventure at mary helen fashion sewing camp where kids get to be fashion designers! Camp is appropriate for all skill levels because we teach the budding fashion designers everything they need to know about designing and sewing their own clothes. We start at the very beginning with creating inspiration boards and sketching designs before cutting out patterns and sewing them together into a final garment. The week concludes with a friends and family fashion show for the designers to showcase their designs.

The dates listed on this page are for our camps for students who will be in grades 4-6 during the 2017/18 school year. See dates for grades 2-4 here and 7-9 here!

Camp is held in our studio in Historic O’Bryonville

1981 Madison Road, Cincinnati OH 45208

  • pick out fabrics
  • learn about using patterns
  • learn how to use a sewing machine and use it to make a skirt or pair of shorts

  • learn about accessories and styling for a fashion show

On the last day of camp we will have a fashion show 30 minutes prior to the end of camp to showcase everyone’s projects!
