Cut & Sew Studio offers classes and private lessons to assist you with just about any sewing question or project you may have. Classes and camps are offered for kids and adults of all ages and all skill levels, from newbie through advanced.
The right space
Cut & Sew Studio first began in a second floor studio space located in East Liberty. In May 2013 the studio moved to a new store front location in the neighborhood of Highland Park, and in the heart of it’s business district, on Bryant Street. After outgrowing the space, Cut & Sew made a final move to 1747 Chislett Street in Morningside in order to expand and offer a larger space for students to work and to accommodate growing classes. This move also allowed for a collaboration to form with Erin Ruscoe, owner of Firecracker Fabrics, which shares the space alongside Cut & Sew. If you would like to come by and see the studio and you are not signed up for a class, you may drop by during the fabric shop’s regular business hours (please check their website for hours as they change seasonally). However, if you would like to speak with the owner (and instructor) Catherine you will need to schedule an appointment during non-class times.
The whole story
Cut & Sew Studio was established in December of 2007. After seeing the growing number of people wanting to learn how to sew, and with the lack of spaces from which to learn in Pittsburgh, the idea of Cut & Sew Studio came about. Merging the love of sewing and learning, Cut & Sew is a place that creates a fun, social sewing environment where anyone can take a class, work on independent projects while meeting with others who are passionate about sewing, as well as those who are just beginning to learn. All the tools are provided at the studio. So whether you are an experienced sewist or a newbie, there is no need to transport a machine or supplies. Here you will find the space and all the necessary equipment to get your project done.
