We go to Camp Workroom Social and chat with our fellow campers about what this sewing weekend means to them. We both found camp to be such a magical, accepting, and heart-opening experience and we really wanted to share that feeling with the sewing community. Get an inside look at this amazing weekend and hopefully we will see you at camp next year!
Jennifer Wiese, Camp Director
“Camp is my most favorite thing EVER!”
Jennifer is a designer who believes that every woman can live a joyful, creative, and confident life. At her Brooklyn-based studio, Workroom Social, she helps women find their joy, creativity, and confidence by empowering them to create clothes they want to wear. She teaches sewists methods that make clothing construction easy and produce beautiful results that look store-bought, not homemade. Jennifer is a summer camp counselor for life and the recipient of the “Spirit of Wewa” award at YMCA Camp Wewa in Apopka, FL, her childhood sleepaway camp. It’s a dream of hers to create Camp Workroom Social, an excuse for adults to sew, make friends, and act like a kid again if only for the weekend.

“We all break needles, and we all sew things on backwards, and we all forget things, and we all mess up…and that’s life.
We all do it. You are not alone.”-Jennifer Wiese
