    Registration for Kilt Kamp usually opens in Jan or Feb. We have to work around Barb's teaching schedule and she usually does not know what that will be until around then. The classes are limited by the size of the available rooms at the two venues. They are normally first come-first served but we do keep an eye out for first comers as that is the whole reason for the Kamps.

    Some do attend a second Kamp and yes we do have some regulars but if you wish to attend keep an eye out here and let Barb or I know.

    Next year's Kamp is currently scheduled to be held on the campus of Hamilton College in Clinton, NY.

    Thanks

    I will be watching for it. I am hoping to have some Scottish wildcat tartan by then, and hope make a kilt at the Kamp. I will have made a practice kilt using TAoKM before that, and hope to use KK to nail down my skills.

    Well, the whole idea behind Kilt Kamp is that someone with the book, fabric, thread, a tape measure, needles and thimble, should be able to start out on day one brand new - and six days later walk out with a finished kilt.

    Those who take the course a second time do so to refine their skills. Those who attended for a third or fourth time are usually there to spend time with Barb.

    And, truly, there are a bunch of different kinds of kilts to make, so people who come back for multiple Kilt Kamps do so for a whole variety of reasons: camaraderie, learning how to make a new style of kilt either from Steve or from me, or just carving out time from busy lives so that they know they can devote a week to kiltmaking without putting it off because of more pressing things in their lives (and I don't mean pressing as in Steve''s fleet of terrific pressing equipment! ).

    By "brand new" do you mean without much in the way of sewing experience?
    At a time like this one must ask themselves, 'WWJDD"

    Yup - whether you're making a kilt the way Steve does or the way I do, all that's required is attention to detail and a willingness to learn. We'll teach you the rest.
