sMASHinFASHin 2018            July 9 to 27              9AM to 3PM                   Ages 8-15 

Designers will begin their day with sewing and design.  We have a full studio set up with dress mannequins, computerized sewing machines, ironing boards, a serger, glue gun stations and every sewing notion you could possibly need.  Designers will be taught basic to intermediate sewing skills (depending on the level when camp starts), beginning draping, beginning pattern-making, fashion drawing, upcycling, textile making/weaving, bleaching/dying/distressing, applique and many other fabulous techniques.

We swim nearly every day in our gorgeous pool to chill out when the design challenges start.  If you hate swimming – this is probably not the right camp for you. We take a swim break nearly every day. Need a break from our swim break? You can watch Project Runway or Fashion Documentaries or look through our amazing historical clothing library of gorgeous coffee-table books.

We will take three day trips to a variety of locations including: Mood Fabrics and the FIT Museum in NYC, and local thrift store and fabric stores in NJ. We will take a special over night trip to Long Beach Island this year; staying in my family member's home in Manahawkin. 

In order to serve young designers with the kind of attention they need to develop their skills we will only accept 16 campers.
