Get the Kids Sewing THIS SUMMER!!!

Summer is a great time for kiddos to try new things and expand their minds creatively while away from the typical homework grind! And here at the Cabbage Rose, we believe that getting that giving kids a creative outlet that they can use their who life is cooler than cool!!! Whether they take up sewing pillowcases for all their friends' birthday gifts or make their very own quilt with our Kids Camp this JULY, we bet if you get them started now, they'll be sewing for life!!
It's almost time again for our annual Kid's Quilting Camp!! This is one of the most rewarding things we do all year because we get to see these amazing young minds create SUCH incredible quilts, usually for the very first time! Have your child join us for a week of quilting basics that will result in an amazing quilt top made completely by them! Each camper receives plenty of instruction from the Cabbage Rose girls, all fabric for their quilt top plus small bonus project, plus snacks and loads of fun each day!
