Event Details

Upcycling Week!

We’re passionate about our planet here at Old Spool, and especially love to up-cycle old, unloved garments into something new and useful. This week campers will be challenged to turn a bunch of old denim jeans into a special room pouf!

Campers are encouraged to bring old denim (upholstery weight woven fabrics are also welcome) with them this week, but we’ll also have bag fulls donated to us thanks to Squan Dry Goods in Manasquan. Campers can also bring old textiles or pillows to help them stuff their pouf.

Projects this week include: 

An up-cycled denim pouf!

Bonus themed projects are always on deck in case students finish the officially listed projects each week. Please keep in mind that our studio is small and cozy which means summer camp spaces are very limited. If a week sells out, a waitlist will be started for students who wish to join in, please email us to be added to the waitlist!



Each week, in separate morning and afternoon sessions, we’ll be offering tons of sewing and craft projects all focused around a centralized theme and each week differs in theme. Campers will flex their creative muscles each day and will be provided with a light, healthy snack and juice box during a quick break. All camps welcome kids of any skill level from beginner to accomplished sewists! Tuition includes all materials, but campers are allowed to bring their own fabric if they have something suitable for that week’s projects. Some projects will also have us exploring different fiber arts such as fabric printing, dying, embroidery and so much more!

You are also welcome to register your child for a full day’s worth of camp but we ask you please pack them a lunch. If you register your child for a full day of camp, you save $50! Please use the code FULLDAYDISCOUNT at checkout. 

*If your child will be coming to Old Spool for the first time, we require all new students take a Beginner Workshop before the week of camp begins so that valuable camp time is not spent teaching them how a sewing machine works. You may register for camp and a beginner workshop at the same time. If you have any questions, please contact us!*

Please Review our class policies prior to registering for camp, by purchasing a spot in camp you acknowledge these policies.
