Urban Sewciety is a fabric shop and sewing studio in Westfield, NJ. Megan Whitney opened the studio in 2015 in a cozy 350 square foot space and began by offering just a few classes, including one which quickly became our most popular - a mommy & me beginner sewing class. Kids loved this class and wanted more, so she started offering after-school courses for kids. Kids came, made cool projects, had tons of fun, and still wanted more! Suddenly, dozens of students were enrolling in after-school classes. After just one year, Megan took on a business partner, Meg Sawyer, and the business expanded to a 1,600 square foot space to keep up with the demand. Two years later, the business was bursting at the seams again and moved to a 3,300 square foot shop.
Meg and Megan strive to foster a relaxed, supportive, fun, and creative environment for students.
