Classes and Workshops for Fall 2021


We have a number of suggested projects for you for this Fall. We're full of creative ideas of things you can sew with a minimum of effort, are versatile, flattering and look superb! The projects we are highlighting below are to designed to be fun, engaging, interactive, and a few can be done as a parent/child joint project. Of course in an individual lesson, the sky is the limit for what you want to do -- and learn. But, if you need a creative idea to get you started, see our suggestions of the things you can create where you can -- Make it. Wear it. AND Look your Best!


Think some friends might like to join you in your creative endeavors? Considering making your own workshop. Grab some friends and we can usually come up with something in terms of both price and date. The minimum number of people to "Make-your-own-Workshop" is three (3) people. We'd be happy to try and fit something in. Contact us at 609.386.4218 or justmakeitsew@justmakeitsew.com to see what we can do.



Individual Lesson Suggestions...


Rain Poncho/Cape


Rain Poncho/CapeSeasons change and winter weather will soon be here. And, as that winter weather approaches, everyone needs some rain gear. In this focus project, we are highlighting a rain poncho/cape that is both stylish and perfect for those not-so-dry days ahead. Pair this with one of our water repellent fabrics and you've got a functional and great looking item. If you are like us, this item it will stay on a hook by your door for those damp days as you head out for the day!

We estimate you will need between 2-3 hours to complete this project and suggest purchasing a block of lessons to complete this project. We can also do this project as a virtual lesson series. Once your lessons and fabric is purchased, we can create the kit for either in-store/curbside pickup or mail delivery. If choosing the virtual option, please allow at least 1 week for delivery. Follow this link to add a block of individual lessons to your shopping cart. Fabric is not included with your purchase of lessons and our kit preparation time will be charged to your block of hours.


Casual or "Dressy" Wide Leg Trousers...


Wide Leg TrousersIt's not often you find a pants pattern that will work with both woven and knits. But, this flattering, wide-legged trouser project works! Depending on the fabric chosen, it can be casual or dressy. It has a flat front, and instructions for a tailored look and a pull-on pant. The soft and flowy style sits on the natural waistline and the finished leg hem is between 10 and 12 inches when measured flat. If you've never sewn your own pants, let us help you make these pants and you'll look like you just walked out of a specialty tailor shop. You did, its just that it was tailor made for you -- by you!

We estimate you will need between 2-3 hours to complete this project and suggest purchasing a block of lessons to complete it. This project is also available as a virtual workshop. Once your block of lessons and fabric is purchased, we can create a kit for either in-store/curbside pickup or mail delivery. If choosing the virtual option, please allow at least 1 week for delivery. Follow this link to add a block of individual lessons to your shopping cart. Fabric is not included with the purchases of these sessions and kit preparation time with be charged to your block of hours.


You'll love making and wearing these projects and best of all, when people ask you where you bought it you can say, "I made it myself!".


An additional word about zoom classes and workshops... As we said above, our projects/classes can also be done as a zoom session. We'll prepare a sewing kit for each person who is signed up. All zoom workshops/classes/lessons must be purchased a minimum of one (1) week prior to the class (more time is better!) and each sewist will need their own sewing machine. Preparation time is charged at the lesson rate or built into the cost of the workshop. We'll need time to get your measurements, fabric choices and prepare the kit for pickup or mail delivery.


All individual lessons are booked around your schedule and our availability. Scheduling priority is given to those who come at the same time each week. We also recognize that sometimes lessons are missed for good reasons. We ask that you just notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule an individual lesson so we have the opportunity to fill that time slot, otherwise we may need to charge you for the missed lesson. For your best value, we recommend purchasing a block of hours. Call us to schedule your date today!
