Summer Camps

In La Movida’s multi-day camps, sewers will be encouraged to customize their projects for personal fit and style. We have introduced different variations of some of our projects to accommodate all levels of sewers! Students are always given the opportunity to choose their own fabrics from a wide selection provided by our in house design team. Fabric selections are based on the most suitable as well as seasonal colours and prints.

Fabric cost NOT included. For convenience, students can purchase fabric from us at 20% off the retail price on the first day of camp. Students are also welcome to bring their own fabric as long as it’s suitable for the project.

We offer two camps each week, 9:30-12:30pm and 1:30-4:30pm. Join us for 1 or both morning and afternoon camps. Bring your lunch and stay for a full day of sewing! Camps are suitable for kids 8 and up.

Refer to each camp for prerequisites. Note: $5 one-time registration fee applied for New Students.

Early drop off & late pick up available upon request at a $5 fee.
