WELCOME TO SEW NEW YORK

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


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 garments you sew at SEW NEW YORK will come out perfect, even lovlier then what you purchase from a store.
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.

FASHION SCHOOL COMING UP? Sew New York can help students getting ready to enter fashion design programs.  Laura's private sewing classes will help you learn how to sew the one, two or three garments you need to submit with your portfolio for acceptance to these schools. Please allow yourself plenty of time to learn to sew before applying to a school program, please try to sign up a 1 year to 6 months in advance of portfolio due date.  Sewing is not something you learn over night it is an acquired skill and takes time, patience and commitment.


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.
