Individual Lesson - 1 Hour Introduction to Sewing (and fashion) Private Lesson - 1 Hour Sling Bag

This is a 1 hour individual lesson for your student -- or maybe even yourself. Learn the basics, brush up on your skills or learn an advanced sewing technique. Sign up below and we'll call you to schedule your time. Pictured here is a younger student with the vest she made for her American Girl Doll during an individual lesson. Lesson cannot be scheduled for less than one hour. Single individual lessons are not available virtually unless pre-approved by JMIS.

Learn to Sew Workshop

To accommodate individuals who may not be comfortable with people coming into the store or sharing our studio space with others taking individual lessons at the same time, we are offering a "closed door" lesson time where the shop will not be open for business during our regular business day. These hours may be scheduled prior to the regular opening of the store, or at the end of the day. Private lessons are only offered on an 'In-store" basis.

Just in time for back to school, we'll make a Sling Bag, like the one pictured here. This bag is a modern update on the backpack. It's perfect for hiking, going on a bike ride and going out on your scooter -- as well as back to school. This is not a "never-sewn-before" project. Appropriate for ages 8 and up. We are expecting this project to take up to 4 hours to complete and have schedule 2 successive Saturday's to finish. Can't make the second session in person? We can finish it virtually!

    This project is currently scheduled for Saturday, September 19th from 10:00 a.m. to noon, and Saturday, September 26th from 10:00 a.m. to noon, if additional time is needed.

Fabric and pattern is included with the purchases of these sessions and is also available as a virtual workshop. Once purchased, the kit for the virtual workshop will be available for in-store/curbside pickup or can be mailed. Please allow at least 1 week prior to the workshop for mail delivery. Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Quantity discounts are available, just add the number of workshops you want to your shopping cart and discounts will be applied automatically.

Lounge Pants Workshop Lounge Top Workshop Individual 2 Hour Lesson Mommy and Me (or Friend) Sewing Lesson

The Lounge Pants, along with the companion workshop, the Lounge Top, is a modern classic style that is reminiscent of 1930's Hollywood glamour. As pictured here, we made these pants using some of our soft and comfortable poly charmeuse fabric that gives them a classy look, but can be made with other woven fabric. This project is designed to be an introduction to sewing in a fun and easy way that will engage both young minds and older hearts.

The morning workshop will be for our younger sewists and the Sunday afternoon workshop is for adults. A choice of fabric and pattern is included with the purchase of this workshop. This can also be done as a virtual project where you could make your own pj pants (and each virtual participant must have a sewing machine available for use.)

    This project is currently scheduled for Sunday, October 11th, with the morning workshop (from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) for youth up to ages 16 -- and the afternoon workshop (from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.) for older teens and adults.

If you choose the virtual option, the project kit for the virtual workshop will be available for in-store/curbside pickup or can be mailed. Please allow a minimum of 1 week prior to the workshop for mail delivery. The workshop is appropriate for ages 8 and up and for all skill levels. Quantity discounts are available, just add the number of workshops you want to your shopping cart and discounts will be applied automatically.

The Lounge Top is the perfect companion to the Lounge Pants. As pictured here, we used a poly charmeuse fabric that is both soft and luxurious. This is a versatile and modern classic top that is reminiscent of 1930's Hollywood glamour. A little longer in the torso and dressed up with a string of pearls or a necklace and it's good enough to wear to virtual work. Shorten the torso and it can be made to wear as a pj top. It can even be made using a traditional flannel. It all depends on your creative mind.

Can also be done as a virtual project where you could make your own pj top. This is perfect for a mother/daughter project! Sign up for the virtual workshop and we'll provide a kit with all the materials needed for this workshop. The kit is available for curbside pickup or can be mailed. Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Quantity discounts available.

    This project is currently scheduled for Saturday, October 17th from 9:00 a.m. to Noon with additional time scheduled individually (as needed) for people to complete their projects.

A choice of fabric and pattern is included with the purchase of this workshop. If you choose the virtual option, the project kit for the virtual workshop will be available for in-store/curbside pickup or can be mailed. Must have a sewing machine at home for use. Please allow at least 1 week prior to the workshop for mail delivery. Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Quantity discounts are available, just add the number of workshops you want to your shopping cart and discounts will be applied automatically.
