COVID-19 Update for Summer Camps 2020: As it stands, we still plan to run all camps as originally scheduled, provided the state and local officials declare it safe for us to operate and that it is feasible for us to do so. Please read more on our Policy Page.
Butcher's Sew Shop Junior offers sewing camps and afterschool & weekend programs for children ages 5 to 15 at two studio locations in the city of Philadelphia.
Voted Best of Philly® by Philadelphia Magazine in 2019, our programs aim to teach kids the skills they need to make their creative ideas come to life -- whether that means making a garment for a beloved stuffed animal or designing a backpack in their favorite colors for school.
Join us for a week-long summer camp with fun fashion or stuffie themes, or build skills through our structured curriculum in an afterschool session, or pop in for a one-day camp on a holiday and create something in a flash.

[Our daughter] has learned so much and sewing is a great skill for her to have (in addition to the other related skills - patience, problem solving, spatial reasoning, etc.).
