Urban Sewciety was founded by Megan Whitney in November of 2015 and in the summer of 2016, Meg Sawyer joined the team. Our goal is to promote, support, and expand the handmade community. We're passionate about bringing a fresh perspective on sewing with our modern sewing studio, beautiful fabrics, and cool project ideas.
At Urban Sewciety, our mission is to make sewing appealing and accessible to today’s kids and adults. We are committed to providing a welcoming, supportive environment in which those who are interested in sewing will succeed at it. It is also our mission to promote the creation of handmade goods in a world that is becoming increasingly plastic and mass-produced. Handmade is better, always!
Why We're Different:
Many crafty kids are interested in sewing, but few places offer classes for kids with projects and fabrics that appeal to them; at Urban Sewciety we create customized, age-appropriate projects for kids - like emoji pillows and tech cases. Many adults also have a desire to learn but can be intimidated by the sewing machine. The large variety of complicated machines on the market have great features and are fantastic for experienced sewists but can intimidate beginners from even trying their hand at the hobby. In our sewing studio we have basic beginner machines that are easy for newbies to learn! Our beginner workshop is only 2 hours, and in that short time period we teach those with no sewing experience how to use the machine and even complete a project. Once you're familiarized with the machine, the possibilities are endless! Come sew with us - check out our class calendar and register today!
