Having two daughters who are interested in learning to sew prompted me to do a little research on places that offer sewing classes locally. To my surprise, I found that there are many fantastic options for kids’ sewing lessons and camps all over the western suburbs of Chicago. As a result, we are all signed up for our first sewing camp over the summer! My girls are “sew” excited to create their very own projects by hand and learn a new useful skill. Check out our list of locations for great sewing classes around town.
