About

It’s Not Your Grandma’s Sewing Studio!

(Read on to find out why!)

Newton Sewing Studio was created in 2012 by Brian (me) who is a bit of a sewing and teaching guru, I was quickly joined by Kye who is our resident creative director.  I love machine mechanics and problem solving and Kye loves working with children and the creative side of the business.

We make an excellent team! 

I taught myself to sew after leaving a successful hair salon business I owned in Las Vegas.   I knew early on I wanted to share my love of sewing with as many people as possible, little did I know at the time that would mean owning a sewing studio for kids!  Apparently the key to happiness is not making tons of money, it’s waking up everyday with gratitude and love for what you do!  After all, a happy life is spent one day at a time right?  We feel very lucky to do what we do here, it almost never feels like “work”.

All of our carefully selected assistant staff are former students of the studio!  Because of this, our whole team has YEARS of experience sewing and working together. 

The studio is open daily (check calendar) for drop-in open studio style classes. Students ages 5 and up enjoy learning while working through projects from basic to advanced. Our drop-in style classes ensure both convenience for parents and the best possible one-on-one instruction for your kids.  Gone are the days of needing to commit to a series of classes and dealing with makeup or “missed” classes.  The studio operates on time, you pay as you go or purchase a package.  Kids sign in and out when they come and go and only the exact time used is deducted from your account.  Keep track of your time useage on your personalized student record which you can access anywhere, anytime.  Most families opt for the 8 hour package which comes out to only $12.50/hour, and that’s with everything included!

All of our sewing projects are specially designed for NSS students using CAD software, making our projects truly unique! Our education content is designed to guarantee success even for the youngest students! 

We’re a high tech facility using the newest and best equipment you can find ANYWHERE that’s open to the public, bar none.  I’m serious.  While our focus is mostly kids we enjoy having every possible tool and technique available to our staff and students because, why not?  Afterall we spend every day here, we deserve it!  Adults are always welcome to join us as long as they’re open minded and can appreciate our high energy environment.  Beginning adults will enjoy our accelerated teaching methods designed to get you on your feet as fast as possible.  It’s not unusual for kids and adults to share the studio simultaneously and we think that’s great for everyone!

We’re self taught which means we don’t follow other people’s rules.  We do what works and come up with innovative ways to do what most people struggle with.  Our students enjoy the type of instruction you simply can’t find anywhere else.  

Just a few of the unique features you’ll find here include:

We don’t skimp on supplies here at Newton Sewing Studio because that’s no fun for anyone, especially not us!  You’ll be sure to find exactly the threads, fabrics, and notions you need for our in-house projects.  If you bring in an outside project idea then you may want to also consider bringing in the exact fabric you wish to use.  Consult with us and we can help!

Parking at the studio is easy and plentiful in our private lot or on North street. We’re in a semi industrial area that shares our address with an auto mechanic, upholstery shop, an Amazon book reseller, an audio remastering service, and of course the bus company.  This place is bustling almost 24 hours a day and may not be “pretty” but is very safe.  Our studio is located upstairs and is clean, big, bright, and beautiful.  We have our own (very nice) private bathroom and feature a vending machine and drinks you may purchase for $1.  There’s also plentiful shopping in the area so please get some errands done after you drop off the kids!  If you wish stay we have a nice waiting area with wifi access for everyone.

Our constant goal is to cultivate Creativity, Independence, and FUN!  We expect that kids can and will do everything themselves if given the opportunity in a supportive and safe environment.  We allow mistakes to be important learning opportunities, often for everyone including us.  There’s no judgement here and we welcome all kids, especially those who have yet to find their place.  We expect more from kids than most and it’s amazing seeing what they can accomplish, even at five years old.  Sewing is an opportunity for unparalleled self growth and we couldn’t live without it!

Wow, you made it all the way through!  You’d probably like to see a few pictures huh?  Have a look and we hope to see you soon!
