Kids Quilt Camp - June 2011

Better late than never, right? Almost forgot to share the fun times that were had at our yearly Kids Quilt Camp. I signed up for the whole day this year -- 8:30am-4pm. Let me tell you, time really does fly when you're having fun! The morning sessions from 9am-12pm were with the beginners (those who never made a quilt or more likely never even sewed before), and the afternoon sessions were from 1pm-4pm with the "advanced" kids (those who attended last year's beginners class or had previous sewing experience).

In the morning we were 1-on-1 with a child. I worked with Victoria and she was a sweetie. Very shy and tentative at first, but by the end of the week she had made some friends. She caught on to sewing very fast.

In the afternoon we were 1-on-2. I had Catherine (she requested me again from her beginner class last year) and Holly. They were both a hoot. Since they have been best friends with each other for years, they were very outgoing and talkative. I would get silly with them a few times and then be the "grown-up" and remind them of the task at hand. LOL!

Can't wait for next year,
