THE CAMP: JP Knit & Stitch’s fiber camp is a weekly, morning camp from 9am – 12pm, Monday – Friday, held here in our shop. There are 8 sessions starting the week of July 6th. You can sign up for one or as many sessions as you like. Each week has a different fiber and craft focus.  Our summer camps are designed to be Fun + Creative + Crafty. We aim to foster a love of creativity & craft in a low pressure environment. 

THE CAMPERS: Campers should be aged 8 and above. Campers can attend the camp without any previous crafting experience. Please email us if your camper is younger than 8. 

THE TEACHERS: We are so excited about our line up of teachers. Along with weeks that are run by our wonderful long-term teachers, Alison Nevitt and Diane Ivey, each summer we are thrilled to introduce new teachers to our roster. All of our camp teachers have experience working with children and are creative artists in their own right. Be sure to check out each of their bios on the individual class registration pages.  

THE COST: Weekly cost is $225 and includes all materials.
