Four-day sewing retreat for adults, featuring contemporary experts in apparel sewing & style!

Camp Workroom Social is not your typical sewing retreat. It’s a new approach to sewing education. At Camp Workroom Social, perfection is not our goal, learning is. Immerse yourself in an encouraging and non-competitive sewing course and escape your everyday routine. Socialize and bond with other adults who share your enthusiasm for sewing, and embrace the excitement of sleepaway camp.

At Camp Workroom Social, sign up for one of six intensive tracks, designed to take your sewing skills from good to great. Our team of professional designers and sewists make apparel sewing approachable and fun. Learn key techniques and build up your skills in a warm and friendly environment. In addition to classes, we've lined up lots of fun camp-inspired activities for you, from rock climbing to weaving. During down time, you can choose to relax or get to know your fellow campers. We designed Camp Workroom Social for you to learn, to practice, and to have fun!

We can't wait to sew with you at Camp!
