The Fashion Class is excited to announce a new Upper East Side sewing studio for children. The new NYC sewing studio will begin offering classes on March 6 and will feature ten digital Singer Sewing machines, a variety of fabric choices, and a fun and creative activity for New York children.
Since 2010, The Fashion Class has been bringing the art of sewing and design to New York Children and Teenagers. Classes meet once a week for ten weeks. Classes are offered after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays and also on Saturday mornings and afternoons.
At The Fashion Class, children learn to sew their own garments. While the activities are fun and stylish, children have the opportunity to learn about creativity, confidence, and even math and science.
The studio is also available for Sewing Birthday parties, where the birthday child and friends create and sew a one-of-a-kind item to take home that day. The studio will also feature a summer camp this June, July, and August with creative sewing projects, fashion design lessons and more. The camps aim to educate campers in all areas of the design process, including learning to measure properly, doing the math to create something that fits, and being able to proudly say, 'I made that!'
Throughout the summer day and week, camp groups ages 6-8, 9-12 and 13-17, not only sew, but also learn about the creative arts industry. Campers learn about the arts through fashion illustration, about retail math and entrepreneurship, fashion history, and fabric fibers in textile science class. All of these lessons, though educational, are taught in a child-friendly and fun way. Fashion History even features real clothing from the 1920's through the 1980's.
Camp groups are small with a maximum of 12 children and organized by age group. Early registrants can receive 10% off of their child's registration by using the code earlycamper19 at checkout, now through March 15. If your child is interested in design, sewing, the arts, or crafts visit The Fashion Class website for more information on the Fashion Class summer camp and other programs.
