Experience Sewing Camp in the Beautiful Catskills


Spend a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Hipstitch Academy's Sewing Camp for adults will teach you new sewing skills, have you exploring nature, and making new creative friends in gorgeous Upstate New York!

Two Different Weekends for Summer 2022:  
July 28-31 & August 18-21

Come spend a long weekend with Megan Avery, longtime sewing instructor and your personal camp counselor for the weekend. She'll help you with your challenging sewing projects and take you to all her secret Catskills hikes and swimming holes when you're not sewing.

Workshops will take place in our peaceful sewing studio set on 5 acres of natural beauty in the heart of the Catskills. Megan fell in love with this property and now lives here full-time and teaches sewing here year-round.  She has converted one of the outbuildings into a cozy, open-air sewing studio (in warmer months) & invites everyone to experience it with her at Sewing Camp.

Sewing camp guests will stay at our Retreat House, a gorgeous 6 bedroom house, set on a lake, 3.5 miles from the studio.
