Sign up now for SewGreen summer sewing camps. The camps are for ages 8 to 10, and 11 to 13. They run Monday through Thursday. Kids learn to use a sewing machine, or perfect their skills, and make a variety of satisfying projects, from pj pants to giant plush critters they design themselves. Everyone has fun. Everyone succeeds. Classes for adults will return in the Fall.

We assess, clean, oil, and tune-up older sewing machines – and provide coaching on how to get the best performance from your machine. Make an appointment for personal attention that will help you understand your machine and how to use it. We also refurbish older and contemporary machines for resale -- but they go quickly.

SewGreen has summer jobs for teens age 14 and up who want to be camp counselors at our sewing camps in July and August. We provide training in sewing and teaching others to sew, as well as basic jobs skills. Contact the Ithaca Youth Bureau, Coop Extention of Tompkins County, or Workforce NY.
