We'll be using Zoom meetings to do the video instruction. Each weekly camp will have a different meeting login, as well as a password in order to keep our classes secure.
The instructor will have two camera views set up for the class. One camera will be a close up of what is happening with the cutting, pinning and/or sewing. The other camera will be the instructor speaking and instructing what is going on. This will allow proper viewing of the steps to make the project. We'll be broadcasting in well lit environments for optimal visual instruction.
We'll be using Zoom webinars format which allows the instructors to be visible for portions of the lesson. Students will be able to raise their hands with questions, as needed. At this time students will be able to engage their video and audio in order to have an instructor answer a question or troubleshoot an issue. We find this is a more optimal setting for learning how to sew via video.

We'll reserve a portion of the zoom class to allow the kids to engage with other kids in the class if time allows.
"Audrey and Claire LOVED camp!!! They had so much fun with both the hand and the machine sewing, equally so. In fact, when they went to their cousins' house the other day they brought their sewing machine and supplies and did projects with them. They are super excited for more sewing sessions. And I was super impressed with their projects, in particular the super cool lunch money cuff. Attaching a couple photos I had taken.
I can't say I have any suggestions other than reminding the kids that they all work at their own pace so they don't feel stressed to keep pace with the fast finishers. For example, with the crazy quilt the girls were convinced they were behind because it took them a while to cut their fabric for the crazy quilt. 🙂 But you guys did a good job with checking in with each kid, which is great.
Appreciate you offering this great virtual camp. Definitely a blessing for us working parents for the kids to have some fun activities to keep them busy this summer in this era of coronavirus."

"it was lovely! Thank you so much for the opportunity...she learned a lot and was so proud of her creations. Thank you both for being so encouraging and positive and creating such a great community via Zoom. 🙂 "

"Eleanor had a great time, and she has continued to make some projects on her own. She's currently working on an owl stuffie for her owl-loving great grandmother, who is turning 99 next week! She also designed her own embroidered flower which she gave to a family friend. I attached a couple of photos. E's primary comment is that she hopes you keep doing virtual classes so she can do it again from here. 🙂 "

"Pippi's feeling pretty proud of all she learned this week. She loved it and is super excited about next week. She had school right after we hung up yesterday so she showed her teacher and her entire class the pouch she made."

"The instructors explained things well! There were kits so you don't need to go out and buy everything. This felt more like an alternative to an in person class because the materials were provided. There are two cameras (one of the teachers and the other of the sewing machine) which was great. You can point your camera at a certain angle so the teachers can provide detailed feedback. In the studio the instructors had us gather around a table and that is similar on zoom when we observe them."

"Megan - Our family can’t thank you enough for the wonderful sewing classes that you’ve both provided online during this time. They have been a major source of joy for Eva. And in return for us as well!
You are both very, very special people and it was a pleasure for Eva to get to sew with you both and for me to overhear the fun you were all having. : )"

"Luna really enjoyed the video classes ! Thank you Megan & Rachel for your guidance and kindness. Our girls have been thoroughly inspired by both of you during this time."
