"Just Junior" workshops are designed to introduce sewing to your junior sewista. Geared towards children ages 5 to 7, we introduce your junior sewista to the world of sewing with a lite educational element. In this workshop we'll start the workshop by cutting out and hand sewing or gluing a set of woodland creature finger puppets. After finishing their puppets, we'll sit down together and read selections from the book Woodland Creatures by Aunt L.

Each creature featured in this smartly illustrated book has its own poem featuring some of the characteristics that make that specific woodland creature unique. This engaging children's book introduces your child to the gentle creatures that live around and near us in a cute and fun way that adults will enjoy too. Sign up now for what promises to be a quickly sold out workshop. Class is currently scheduled for Sunday afternoon, January 27th, 2019 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Class size limited to 7 students and a parent/guardian. Workshop includes a lite snack.

It's never to early to start thinking about summer... Information is now available for our 2019 Summer Camps. This year, we will focus on designing, making and sewing items inspired by hiking or camping in the European alps -- with style and flair!

As part of this year's camp, "Glamping Through the Alps", your sewista or sewistor will have fun making new friends, sewing up a storm and being the first to make their own fashionable and classic outfits. YOU, are cordially invited to join Just Make it Sew as we explore fashion and sewing with an Alpine flair! We will end each week of camp with a studio display of finished projects that -- like previous years -- will be recorded and put on the JMIS YouTube channel to showcase each person's projects. If the girls are interested, they can even do their own fashion runway.

Our summer camps are appropriate for aspiring sewista's from ages 8 to 17. We will offer a few advanced projects for our more advanced, returning and more experienced sewistas. A number of this year's projects will allow each sewista to choose from among various design options that will allow them to express their creativity -- and showcase their own style. Besides having fun, making new or renewing old friendships and learning basic or new sewing skills, we will make up to 3 or 4 items listed.

So, begin planning your trip to the European Alps and join us in one of these fun weeks. You'll have a grand time learning, creating and sewing. Better yet, a trip is better shared with someone, so bring a friend -- and plan on signing up for this camp! We look forward to seeing you soon. Follow this link for more details or to register now.

Just Make it Sew offers a number of classes and workshops just for the younger sew-er! Listed above are our upcoming workshops and mini-camps specifically tailored for the younger sewista (ages 7 thru 16). All classes are subject to our Class Policy.
