“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 STUDIO IS TEMPORALLY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19
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.

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.
