Students will complete stylish, on-trend projects while learning basic sewing techniques, including how to determine the perfect fabric choice for their project, modify and layout patterns, cut fabric, construct garments and seam finish.
In La Movida’s four day camps sewers will be encouraged to customize their projects for personal fit and style. Students are always given the opportunity to choose their own fabrics from a wide selection provided by our in house design team.
We are offering parents the chance to host birthday parties for their kids in our beautiful studio. Let your children create amazing memories through fun-filled activities including sewing and creative design.
