Families who do not have a sewing machine, a yard of fabric, and a few notions can pick up a loaner from Victoria. Please email Victoria directly to arrange: or text at 201.575.9410.

Pricing includes the cost of the 2 one-hour virtual sessions on June 24 and July 1 in preparation for in-person camp. There is no additional cost for the virtual lessons.
