Classes for the younger Sewist

Be Inspired! And see what you can Sew!

Classes and Workshops for Fall 2021

Our workshops are also available as virtual workshops!

Below is our current listing of classes and workshops for our younger sewists. Our classes and workshops are designed to be fun, engaging, and many can be done as a joint project with both a parent and child/youth and either in-person or virtual. If the project is done online as a virtual session, we will prepare a kit for each person who is signed up. All zoom workshops must be purchased a minimum of one (1) week prior to the class, so we have time to get measurements, fabric choices and prepare the kit for pickup or mail delivery. See below for the details with more to come for her -- and you!

Design & CreateDesign & CreateTuesday afternoon/evenings, beginning November 9th -- The Design & Create Fashion Series.

Do you know a budding fashionista? Has your fashionista dabbled with creating their own fashion designs? Do they have a lot of creative ideas but don't know how to translate the idea into a finished project? Bring those to Just Make it Sew and we'll help you "bring-your-design-to-life."

In this class series, we'll start with designing a skirt and take you along the path from idea to design detail to completed project. Week one (1) will focus on designing the project, going over basic construction techniques, taking measurements, and (if needed) a primer on how to use a sewing machine. In week two (2) we'll take the idea, make a pattern, and begin cutting out fabric. Week three (3) will be the final stages of assembly and finishing the project.

The Design & Create Series will take place on Tuesday afternoon from 4:45 to 6:15 on the following dates: November 9th, 16th and 30th (we're skipping Thanksgiving week.) We've also reserved Dec 7th for additional time or as a makeup date, if needed.

A selection of fabric is included in these sessions. Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Because of the schedule and upcoming holidays we will generally not have time to allow for makeup classes outside of the above schedule. Follow this link to sign up for this workshop.
