Sew New York


WELCOME TO SEW NEW YORK, NEW YORK CITY'S PLACE FOR PRIVATE BEGINNER SEWING CLASSES.

Your place for private sewing classes located in NYC's Brooklyn Heights.

Have you taken sewing classes but can't seem to make your garments look like they came off the store hanger.  At SEW NEW YORK, everything is individualized with the private one-on-one instruction from Laura, you will learn how to construct and sew perfect, professional garments.  Sewing is an acquired skill and takes time and patience and very hard to learn in large classes. You'll find the quality of the things you sew at SEW NEW YORK will come out perfect, even lovlier then what you purchase from a store.
Fashion school coming up and you need to learn to sew to get your porfolio ready.  Laura's one-on-one sewing classes will help you to get the portfolio ready for acceptance to these schools.

After your first project which will turn out perfect, you'll get to sew projects that you choose. You will get to select designs from the wonderful world of commercial patterns.  New and vintage patterns are all yours to choose from.

Sewing is a zen experience, let your overcharged brain relax and make sewing your next best therapy.  Come and join the relaxing spirit of sewing, share a cappucino, esrpresso, or tea and at our evening classes join the zen experience with a glass of wine.

Below you can view the wonderful handmade garments all made by the students at Sew New York. Click on the individual thumbnails to view the student's finished projects.
