"I'm a former student and I loved every class. I started my sewing classes when I moved from Venezuela, and I originally started taking the classes to deal with all the emotions of the immigration process. But The Sewing Studio did more for me. It helped me to meet people, practice my English, and discover a new talent — I'm currently a Fashion Marketing & Merchandising student!"
"I just wanted to thank you so much. I truly enjoy our sewing class and you have given me so much confidence to sew. I am almost done with sewing the cover for my ironing board. I can't believe that not only am I capable of doing it but that I have the confidence and skill to do it. Thank you again for helping me to feel at home with sewing. I have discovered a new love."
"My friend Bela learned to sew with you and now she is just such a fabulous sewer! She made my husband and I a quilt as a wedding present. So thank you for spreading your fabulousness!"
"I have always wanted to sew my own clothes, but I was an absolute beginner when I signed up for the class. We covered all of the basics within the first two lessons and we were sewing our first project by day three! The hands-on approach made it easy to learn; my classmates helped each other out (which made it fun); and the class became a social gathering as well as a learning experience. I already have friends who want to take the same class, and we'll be signing up for the next level as soon as they catch up!"
" My alterations workshop and bootcamp classes were the best ever. I really enjoyed myself and your teachers are phenomenal. I hope to take more courses at the studio in the future. I wish they didn't have to end :)"
"Excellent course and very enjoyable. It was a pleasure to learn in such a nice, intimate, and fun environment. I learned lots of new skills and was able to complete my project from start to finish—a beautiful black-and-white zebra-print silk dress that I wore to my friend’s wedding. (The compliments were flying!) I'm looking forward to the next course!”
"I took Introductory Sewing and within two classes had many of the basics down and was able to enjoy sewing on my own. I now have the confidence to tackle all sorts of projects that I never would have attempted before."
"Taking classes at The Sewing Studio was a great experience! I met a lot of fun people and learned a ton of new tips. My instructor was a total professional and one of the most patient people I've ever met. Look out Project Runway!"
“The Sewing Studio made my introduction to sewing fun and successful. The classes were informative and productive, and I'm still wearing the first skirt I ever made!”
“An intimate class in a no-pressure atmosphere—what more could you ask for? Our instructor gave us lots of detailed instructions, encouraged questions, and didn't make us feel stupid. The other participants were nice and easygoing, too. I'm planning to sign up for another one.”
“I was impressed by how organized and detail oriented the classes were. Having printouts for each class that reviewed the steps we learned and provided other tips and useful information was very helpful. The instructors are passionate about sewing and patient teachers, which is important when you’re a beginner!”
“I've been to other sewing classes but this one takes the cake. The instructors are great—really patient and knowledgeable—and I never feel like I can't ask a question…even if I've already asked the same one six times before!”
“I loved how the Introductory Sewing class started with the basics but still allowed us to make use of our new skills immediately through making various projects. Everyone I interacted with at The Sewing Studio was super nice and friendly. My instructor was very patient and encouraging with the students in the class even when we brought the wrong type of zipper, asked the same questions over and over, and sewed things on backwards. Since completing the class I have put my new sewing skills to good use making a yoga bag and a tote bag complete with photo pockets. I would definitely recommend The Sewing Studio to anyone who would like to learn how to sew but isn’t sure where to start. I will be taking more classes for sure!”
“Loving your class! I made three drawstring bags over the weekend out of flannel (for my daughters) and am now confident enough to try pjs. Will never buy anything from La Senza again!! My 16-year-old son just brought home an 80% in his Fashion class as a final mark. He's my inspiration along with your great instructors."
"Madeleine was thrilled with her experience in the Introductory Sewing course! She feels confident, excited, and ready to tackle another sewing project! She can't say enough good things about her teacher. "That's what she was meant to do," she said to me. "She's a natural teacher ... inspiring, fun, and patient." Obviously, your instructor knows how to impart her knowledge and love of sewing to her students. Madeleine is hoping to do another course soon at your school. She also really appreciates the fact that Free Studio Time is available to her any time. That's a great plus. Congratulations on running an awesome and professional school. It seems to me that you are reviving an art that was in the process of being lost. Thank you again!"
"I just wanted to say how much Isabella and her friends enjoyed their sewing party. They had a great time and I wanted to compliment you and your team on a job well done! Please pass on my note to the instructors. The Sewing Studio is wonderful. I think we are already planning to come for some lessons in the near future! Thanks so much for giving us a great party."
Skyler, Bia, and I want to thank you for an amazing week at The Sewing Studio. You and your staff went far and above our expectation. There were wonderful memories made at The Sewing Studio for Skyler and Bia that you could never buy and that they will never forget. Not to mention all they learned and the amazing projects they came home with. What a sense of accomplishment and pride for them.
The Sewing Studio was an incredible experience and it was a thrill to see my daughter enjoy sewing, and start a lifetime journey of fabric projects. The attention given to us by the staff was incredible, and proof positive that sewers really are wonderful people.
