Why sewnow! ?

In the past, the traditional art of sewing was passed down from mother to daughter from generation to generation.  Today, things are different.  In the last 50 years, the availability of affordable and well-designed clothing reduced the need for home sewing and with it,
the overall understanding of this once-necessary skill.  But now, people from all walks of life see sewing as an opportunity to move beyond the cookie-cutter approach to fashion,
and express their own personal style and their creativity in the clothes they wear everyday.  sewnow! fashion studio was created to empower people to design and create these fashions.  At sewnow! fashion studio you can learn how professionals design fashion; traditional sewing skills; and combine that with the commercial assembly techniques that make creating your own clothing fast and easy. 

sewnow! has also broadened it's reach with the launch of FashionKit, so that fashion sewers outside of the San Francisco bay area can also access the great designs, patterns, and instructions that make sewnow! so unique. 


sewnow! is the creation of Susan Goldie, a fashion designer with professional experience that includes theatrical costume design, commercial clothing production, couture evening wear and bridal wear design and production.
