Sewing-themed summer camps offered for kids 7-14 in Truckee

Staff report

Grayson and Donovan Martin and AnnMarie Cuneo participate in a Kids Sew Cool camp last year.

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Beginning in Truckee Fabrics, then moving when the shop sold to Tahoe Donner, and now at Sierra Expeditionary Learning School behind the fire station in Truckee, Kids Sew Cool is rolling along.

After 18 years, Kids Sew Cool is still offering an alternative summer experience that results in life-long skills. The students use real machines and create things that they can use and wear.

Linda Brush, a 40-year summer resident of Truckee and retired middle school teacher, presents a comprehensive program, and class size is limited to eight for maximum enjoyment for all the students. All camps held at Sierra Expeditionary Learning School at 11603 Donner Pass Road.

Four camps will be offered this summer; each is offered from 9 a.m. to noon or 1-4 p.m.:

Beginning Sewing: June 22-25
