Make it. Wear it. Look your Best!
Everyone looks great in tailor made clothing. We at Just Make it Sew want you to look your best and we believe that given some basic instruction, you can begin sewing great looking -- and superbly fitting -- clothing. And, clothing that you make yourself can be made for a fraction of what designer shops or tailors will charge.
To get you started -- or help you along -- Just Make it Sew has a variety of opportunities for you to learn to make your own clothing, take your sewing to the next level or learn garment contruction and fitting. You can choose from individual lessons, to classes and workshops, to summer sewing camps, to group meetings. This page offers you a variety of opportunities to learn and grow in your sewing skill.

One of the highlights of the year for young sewistas is our JMIS summer sewing camps.
Camps at Just Make it Sew run from Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and focus on learning to sew or expanding sewing skills. It's a great opportunity to learn valuable skills, have loads of fun and make new friends. Many young people can't wait to sign up and come back year after year after year. We accept children ages 8 to 16 and limit camp size to maximize individual instruction.
Our Summer Camp theme for 2017 is "Life's a Beach!" and we'll be making things that can be worn or taken to the beach, pool, or any summer activity. Follow this link for more information.
The theme for 2016 was "Have Fashion -- Will Travel!". For pictures from last year's camp, click on this link.
