Millie the Mouse :: Handmade Doll Camp
When: July 11 – July 14
Campers will enjoy making their very own handmade doll. After they make Millie, they will begin stitching and cutting to create her clothes and accessories!
Sewing experience is preferred as this introduces slightly more advanced techniques.
