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 - Start/finish sewing projects, independent time just for you. Unwind in our spacious sewing studio & rent our machines by-the-hour ($12) or bring your own (no instruction given). During OPEN HOURS or book an appt.
