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. 




Join our drop-off camp season

any time!


"I can not express enough how outstanding Butcher's Sew Shop is. The entire staff is so patient and friendly. My kid LOVES every moment there and cherishes all her projects."

— Nadine B.

"I wanted to let you know how much we have valued Butcher's. [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.). I'm really glad Butcher's is around to give kids the chance to try it out."

- Dana D.

"Thank you for running this program for the kids. [Our son] always enjoys going and we all really appreciate the time and effort everyone takes to teach him all the awesome skills that he's learned."

— Drew O.

"[Our daughter] is loving sewing! She comes home and tells me all about the process. Knowing a little about the skill, I can tell she's paying attention and truly interested. So kudos to your team for a fabulous job!"
