Our Long Island Kid's Sewing Studio | The Fashion Class of Merrick

Our Long Island Kid's Sewing Studio

We are located in Merrick, NY in Nassau County Long Island. Our 3,000 Square Foot fashion studio features a fully equipped sewing classroom, a fashion art classroom, our 'la chic boutique' full of fab gifts plus plenty of space for amazing fashion shows!

Sewing Classes for Kids

In our Sewing Studio you'll find state-of-the-art Singer Quantum Stylist Touch Screen sewing machines. Our machines are outfitted with finger guards and speed control for little sewers. For our more mature sewists we have adjustable dress forms, steam irons and cutting tables.

Our staff is made up of real fashion designers who all hold degrees from top fashion schools like Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Many of our teachers are from the Long Island area and continue to work in the fashion industry with name brands or their own labels.

In a sewing class or course you can expect your child to learn how to thread and operate the sewing machine, sewing machine safety plus create a wearable garment or accessory that they take home that day!

The Fashion Show

At the end of each sewing course or week long camp we hold a professional fashion show complete with a raised 24 foot runway that lights up! Walking the catwalk in an outfit they sewed themselves is an unforgettable experience for our students and their parents. The lights go down, the music comes on and it's showtime!

Illustration and Fashion Classes

Our art classroom has life-size fashion illustrations on the walls depicting the five "fashion capitals" of the world. In this creative environment students learn about the design process with unique creative art classes for kids.

These 'add-on' courses are designed as complements to Fashion Design and Sewing. We regularly offer classes like fashion illustration where students learn the art of designing fashion using specialty markers and paint. We also love to expand into fashion entrepreneurship, creating a fashion brand, merchandising and marketing classes all created for children to help them learn and grow in areas outside of sewing.

Fashion and Sewing Birthday Parties

Perfect for girls and boys fashion themed birthday parties, our location is a premiere birthday party place on Long Island. We host one party at a time with separate rooms for food, parent hang-outs and sewing/fashion/or crafts.

Party guests can sew a real garment, put on a full runway show complete with hair, make-up and styling from our 'fashion closet' or even create a fab DIY craft with their entire class!

Summer Camps

In our weekly summer camp programs campers are divided into separate age groups where they learn age appropriate sewing and design skills. Our Teen campers visit a real fabric store to shop and design and create their own clothing. Teen camp ends with a professional photo shoot.

Our Kids camp teaches sewing, fashion design and illustration from 10-3 each day throughout the summer. Kid fashion campers in our long island location end their camp week with a fashion show!
