About Gertie

Come enter the friendship circle! You’re a Charm Scout now, and Camp Gertie is your new home away from home. Imagine a magical place where sewing machines whir all day, a million stars twinkle in the night sky, cute animals frolic, and friendship is the fabric that keeps us together. Join your fellow scouts in sewing class, roast a marshmallow over the campfire, take a dip in the lake in your cutest retro swimsuit, and fall asleep under the twinkling lights in the glampsite.



We’re a troop of sewing enthusiasts with a love of vintage glamour. And above all, Charm Scouts know how to feel the fantasy and make it a reality. We believe in exploring every inspiration to its fullest. Sewing is an art, and every artist owes it to themselves to dig as deep as possible into the wells of creativity and self-discovery.

Much like Phyllis Nefler in the ‘80s classic “Troop Beverly Hills'', we believe that being kind, fabulous, and resourceful all go hand-in-hand. As Phyllis famously said, “I started my new meaningful life today, and I bought a whole new meaningful wardrobe to go with it.” Charm Scouts believe that sewing is way more powerful than shopping (well, unless we’re talking about fabric shopping). Sewing is a skill that has been passed on for generations, and we love being a part of that herstory. We also love that our skills result in glamorous new wardrobes that make us feel like a million dollars.



Every month at Camp Gertie, you’ll receive an inspiring new project and video to expand your sewing horizons. Education is one of the most important tenets of Charm Scout life, so we make sure to provide you with the tools necessary to advance your skills. You can also earn merit badges in everything from buttonholes to bias binding! Everyone loves a well-decorated sash, so make sure to choose the appropriate tier and read the fine print below.



Community is another of our main tenets, some might even say the most important. A Charm Scout is a friend to all and a sister* to every other Charm Scout, and we strive for cheerful kindness in all of our interactions, especially online. Meet your fellow scouts at monthly virtual troop meetings as well as other live events. We’re also introducing the Charm Scout Discord server, a place where you can chat with your fellow campers, share inspiration, and post photos of your latest projects.

Pick a tier and dive in...the water is fine here at Camp Gertie!

*(We say sisterhood because it aligns with our core beliefs of feminism, but all genders are welcome here! In fact, everyone is welcome here and diversity and inclusion are part of the Charm Scout way of life.)
