Summer Camp 2017
Summer Sewing Camp 2017


Life's a Beach!


What do you do when it's cold and miserable, maybe even a little white, outside? Do what we do and think warm thoughts!


Life's a Beach!Life's a Beach! is our 2017 summer sewing camp theme. This year, we will be focusing on designing, making and sewing items that can be worn at the beach, at the pool, or at home -- anywhere where summer fashion is in style.


As part of "Life's a Beach!" your young sewista will have fun making new friends, sewing up a storm and being he first to make their own trendy and fashionable outfits. YOU, are cordially invited to join Just Make it Sew as we explore sewing and fashion. Each camp week will be a "Beach Week" at JMIS during the summer. We will end each week of camp with a studio display of finished projects that, like last year, will be recorded and put on the JMIS YouTube channel to showcase each person's projects.

Hard at Work!Our summer camps are appropriate for aspiring sewista's from ages 8 to 16. We are offering an advanced camp week and a week geared to our older sewista's. 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 (of those listed below) as time allows which will be chosen from among the following projects (project pictures to come soon):

  • A Beach or Pool Towel Tote. Bring your own beach towel with a favorite character, theme or location, and we'll turn it into a special tote for all your beach supplies. Folds out as a towel for laying on the beach or by the pool! (Beach towel not supplied).
  • Bathing Suit sampleRomperA tie-dyed sarong style wrap skirt. Recycle an old or bring in a new t-shirt and we'll tie-dye it before making it into a wrap style skirt.
  • A stylish bathing suit. Make your own two-piece bathing suit with opportunity for design changes (e.g. tankini or ruffle skirt).
  • A fashionable summer dress. A stylish light cotton summer dress suitable as a sundress or coverup.
  • A pair of shorts, a romper and/or... other projects as time allows.


So, begin planning your getaway and join us for your summer at the shore or anywhere you will having fun! Have fun making new friends -- or, even better, bring a friend -- and sign up for this camp today! We look forward to seeing you soon.
