COVID-19 Update

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

The truth of the matter is that we’re all in this together, and as of today, no one has any certain answers as to if or when life may return to the way it was.  At Newton Sewing Studio we’re committed to doing whatever is necessary to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and their families.  

Mask Brigade Update


Last week we constructed 416 face masks in the studio to be donated to local facilities.  So far masks have gone to the following organizations: Presentation Nursing Home, Tufts Medical Center, Cambridge Health Alliance, and Hebrew Senior Life.  

While 400 masks may seem like a lot it’s a very small fraction of what is needed in our local community.

We are currently sourcing more materials to start the next round of mask construction.  It has been decided that sew at-home kits is probably the safest and fastest way to get masks done in bulk.  There is a team of project managers who have been brought on to help with different aspects of the project.  In an effort to keep focused on my own part of the project all administrative and communication tasks have been taken over by others on the team. 

You can contact The Mask Brigade here: volunteers@themaskbrigade.com

If you haven’t yet you can sign up to help here:


When you sign up you will be put on the list to receive the newsletter that has updates on the project.  I will also try and update here as new info is available.

This photo shows 200 of the 400 completed masks.

Registrations Open For Kids Winter/Spring Classes!

Our After School Series is fantastic for kids who want a weekly sewing class. It’s a regularly occurring class but there’s still plenty of flexibility for parents! You choose your day and time, you can even change your schedule. Oh, and did I mention it’s priced well below our regular drop-in rates? It’s a win-win!

Adults Weekday Classes Start Today!

Ok, that’s misleading, you can start today if it’s Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday! The adult weekday series is a regularly occurring class that takes place on a weekday. You choose your day and start time, you can even change your schedule. It’s a two-hour class unless you opt for the three-hour option. Affordably priced below the drop in rates, you can’t lose!

Saturday Classes Are Fantastic!

I can’t think of a better way to kick off your weekend than with some creativity! The two-hour Saturday series runs from 10am to 3:30pm. It starts late enough to not feel rushed in the morning but also ends early enough to have plenty of time left in your day. This is a fantastic class to take alone or with your kids, significant other, or a friend. Saturday morning at the studio is full of bright morning light, great music, and a fun light atmosphere. Can’t make every Saturday? Don’t worry, we can schedule around your important events so you don’t pay for classes you can’t use.
