As a small business owner I know how time consuming it is to spread the word about our businesses. So, I'm am honored to have the opportunity to feature some of the amazing small businesses in our community. Be sure to visit them and say hi!
Yvonne Dill-Cruz and Yvonne Coleman
Please Tell everyone a bit about your business.
We are a modern sewing studio and we specialize in teaching kids to sew. Located in beautiful Claremont, CA, our goal is to inspire and pass forward this wonderfully creative art. We also enjoy teaching adult classes and have dedicated the second Saturday of each month to adult sewing classes.
How did you come to start your business?
We both learned how to sew as children and hold dear the memories of being able to create sewing projects with our own hands. It was a thrill to learn about and use different textured and vibrant colored fabrics. And of course, using a sewing machine as a kid is a very cool feeling too.
How long have you been in business?
We are honored to have been embraced by our local community and families from near and far. Although we have been teaching together for over 4 years, our doors at SEWciety Studio were open for business in March 2016.
Where do you hope your business will be in 5 years?
In 5 years, we hope to have inspired a new generation of sewing enthusiasts to continue being creative and inspire those around them to pick up sewing as well. We plan to widen our reach by increasing the number of students we can teach directly and through fun online video tutorials.
What’s your favorite part of running your own business?
Seeing our students thrive is pretty awesome! Everyday we see students go from never having touched a sewing machine to have the independence to choose projects and fabrics, and making their projects come to life.
Thank you Yvonne and Yvonne for answering all my questions. Now, friends, it's our turn to visit this awesome studio!
