Welcome to Summer Camp! Do you remember how much fun you had at summer camp as a kid? What were your favorite parts? S’mores…fishing…canoeing…wait that sounds like camping NOW!
Join us for our Fiona Sandwich Summer Camp. There activities to help you grow your creativity AND you’ll work on your National Park quilt! No need to be an experienced sewer; beginners and seasoned sewers will have a great time!
Summer Camp starts May 30, and runs through September 5, 2022. Sew from where ever you are whether at home or on the road! Go at your own pace; regardless of how many you finish, you’ll have blocks for a travel quilt or wall hanging filled with your treasured memories. Use your choice Fiona Sandwich National Park and Condiment (these are supplemental patterns that are not NP specific, but help tell your travel story) patterns.
No experience is required; beginners and seasoned sewers will have a great time! You will learn how to English or Foundation Paper Piece. I used to be really frustrated with FPP…until I discovered secrets, which I have turned into a simple method so you have success every time! I thought EPP was for the birds – who wants to sew by hand when you have a perfectly good machine…then I tried it and I was hooked! I have videos for both methods. If you think you can’t quilt, it’s just sewing. Nothing fancy. If you can sew, you can quilt!
This summer, we’ll explore all things with color, and choosing fabrics for your National Park quilt blocks. The activities will help you see colors in a new and fresh way. You’ll discover how to maximize the fabrics you have, and confidently choose colors for your travel quilt.
There are weekly prizes, as well as prizes based on how many blocks you finish.
What summer “Campers” said about Summer Camp:
“I love this summer camp- it’s really got me sewing.” – Sue
“My very first block! I am new to quilting but have been looking at these patterns for a few years, too afraid to try. Summer camp gave me the push I needed, followed the video and I did it! Now to tackle a block without the video.” – Kathy
