Welcome to TISSU Sewing Studio. Nestled at Historic Ash-Grove (across East High School) sits a charming fashion sewing "school" bringing back - with style - time-honored fashion arts & crafts with a modern twist. Blink twice & you'll miss this local gem & eclectic nook of creativity. Meaning “fabric” in French, TISSU (pronounced "tís soo") isn't your ordinary sewing school. We pride ourselves in honoring culture & tradition, yet pushing the limits in contemporary fashion design. We encourage our students to embrace their individuality & curiosity, standing out from the crowd instead of blending in. We inspire them to imagine & create, with limited technology, utilizing only their minds, hearts & hands.
Our goal is to introduce the art of sewing & fashion design to a new generation, empowering youth, teens & the young at heart through handcrafted traditions & creative self-expression.
We offer an imaginative learning environment, innovative classroom projects & character-building programs in:
Costumes (cultural, contemporary)
Global Textiles & Crafts
And don't forget about our SEWCIALS:
Sewing Lounge - Rent our machines by-the-hour ($9), sew & craft independently; no instruction given. During OPEN HOURS.
Le Boutique - Shop & hang out with us! Spend your lunch or free time at the studio & shop one-of-a-kind merchandise - handcrafted clothing, textile remnants, pattern envelopes, patternmaking supplies, fashion books & sketch journals & much more.
FINAL FRIDAYS (see Events) - FREE monthly showcase of local artists & designers
Fashion & Birthday Parties; Corporate Creativity (team-building)
There's something for the entire family. We look forward to hearing from you & HAPPY SEWING.
