Sewing lessons are now being offered at The Sewing Room, a sewing school owned by Lauren Schmidt, a local seamstress. The Sewing Room, located at 1182 South Main Street Unit 2 in Attleboro, MA. will be holding an open house and class enrollment on August 24, from 10am to 1pm. All are welcomed to visit the classroom, learn about the classes offered and class registration for the soon approching Fall 2013 school year.
Classes begin in September and offer students ages 8 to adult all the tools and skills they need to complete multiple handmade projects in class. Students will learn all the techniques from basic sewing to fashion design. Class sizes are small to ensure optimal one-on-one instruction throughout the course. In June, students put on a fashion show showcasing their talents for friends and family.
The Sewing Room uses the Kids Can Sew & Fashion Design Program for all students. This program has workbooks for each age group including adults with multiple levels of difficulty. There are numerous patterns in each level with instructions that are easy to understand, especially for younger students. Students will choose their own fabrics and accessories to make the projects outlined in the workbooks and receive help and demonstration from The Sewing Room Instructor / Owner.
Lauren Schmidt, owner of The Sewing Room, started sewing at the age of 10, and continued her education throughout high school. She has always been very creative and learned quickly, starting with small projects and clothing. Halloween is her favorite holiday, and with two children she quickly mastered costumes that were the talk of the town. Lauren has also made numerous dance costumes for New England Dance Academy, a local dance school her daughter attended here in Attleboro. She is currently a talented costumer for The Encore Repetory Company, a theathre group that preforms at The Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket, RI and a seamstress for a bridal shop in Attleboro. She is excited to start a new chapter in her sewing career.
Lauren can't wait to share her knowledge and passion for over 40 years of the skill of sewing. She believes its a skill, when learned, can last a lifetime. She is excited to showcase her new facility at her open house.
