Butcher's Sew Shop Junior offers sewing camps and afterschool & weekend programs for children ages 5 to 15 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.
