Love Letters

Here are a few love letters from current and former clients and students. We strive to help everyone who walks through our door to feel the positive creative energy of our studio, and to learn what it takes to feel “sew” fabulous!

 Saved Wedding Gown:

Thank you so much for working on my dress. I tried it on for my mom and daughter and they both loved it.  Laura let out the gown and took it in in the right places. It was a gown from a “green” wedding store. They had told me that it was easy to fix and that I should just loose some weight to make it fit better! I did loose some weight but you made the gown fit me perfectly.

I had contracted another alteration place in Longmont to create a bustle. They did this by just sewing a silver hook on the outside of my gown and they snagged it so badly I thought the dress was ruined! Then we found Laura at Sew Fresh Studio. My daughter couldn’t believe that adding a draped “scarf” over the gown’s flaw, could enhance the dress that much. The added touch of the beads by the ruching was perfect as well.

You save my gown and now I love it even more than I did before! Thanks again, and I’ll send a picture in a few weeks.

Custom made pants from a guy in California:

I loved my pants that I have had for over 10 years. They finally ripped down the back and there was no hope until I found Sew Fresh Studio on the web! I just called and asked if I could send my pant to them for a bid. They went above and beyond my hopes. they sourced fabrics that would work form 3 fabric stores in the Boulder/Longmont area, sent me samples with numbers on each piece and then gave me a bid for a master pattern to be made and then a cost for each pair of pants to be made. The first pair arrived about 3 weeks later and I was blown away because they fit so well. My original pair had gotten too tight and shrunk so we made the new ones just a bit bigger and longer. The fabrics were terrific and since the first pair fit so well I had them make 4 more pairs! I love my new pants! Thank you Sew Fresh Studio you all made my dream come true!

Fashion Design Classes

I took Flat Pattern Making & Draping last summer at Sew Fresh Studio.Wanted to share my first completed project using the skills I learned in those classes. I designed and created an Irish Dance solo dress! I’m going to put it up for sale at a competition this weekend. I was amazed at how well everything came together using the techniques I learned in your classes.I couldn’t have done it without my new skills & techniques!Thank you so much for these wonderful classes.
Best Wishes,

Fashion Student Recommends our classes

Dear Sew Fresh Studio Teachers: As you know, I am attending CSU and have been accepted into the design concentration program as of this semester. I have been doing a lot of sewing lately, because of this I just wanted to tell you that I am so grateful for the beginners sewing classes I took with you. It has really made a difference, I am one of the more competent sewers in my design class, so thank you! and I’m looking forward to taking some classes this summer!–

Custom Made Wedding Gown of My Dreams

Thank you so much for making me a gorgeous wedding gown! It fit like a glove and it was extremely comfortable the entire night. I really appreciate what you did for me!   I have already been asked by a few newly engaged friends for your information.  I graciously gave them your card and hopefully they will contact you soon.   Feel free to use any of these photos in your portfolio.

Non Traditional Wedding of My Dreams

Nora McCray and her Sew Fresh Studio Design Team are just amazing! I cannot imagine how my wedding style would have happened without Nora, Judy and the whole Sew Fresh crew!! I have been there many times for alterations now and have been incredibly impressed with the quality each time. So far, Nora’s creative & talented team has helped me with: retro/vintage wedding dress alterations (I bought a mod orange wedding dress  for $65 and it was a little snug in all the wrong places… After Nora’s suggested alterations, I felt like a movie star and was SO happy that Nora caught all the little details, such as where to let things out and where to take them in. This stuff is complicated!), custom wedding groom suspender creation/sewing (they hand sewed these suspenders for the best man and groom – and both will cherish them for years to come), custom bridal veil/head piece (I found 1940s vintage chocolate brown veil material and a few silk flowers, and Nora created a masterpiece out of it!), a complex German dirndl zipper replacement and some business slack hemming). My partner and I have also been there once for a monster doll making class with a refresher on sewing techniques. Nora taught me that my sewing machine was not evil. Yeah! I love Nora for this! I just needed patience, and a few of Nora’s clever “learn to sew” tricks.

A Guy Who Loves Sewing Now

My girlfriend felt like I needed a new hobby and recommended sewing classes for the both of us. I was afraid at first cause we went to another studio and it was so lame and boring, she decided one more time to try a new place and we went to Sew Fresh Studio and never in my life have i had more fun! As a guy I recommend this place!

Beautiful Bridal Alterations

Nora and her crew helped me make my store bought wedding dress into a beautiful custom dress. They listened to my requests and made them all happen. I love my dress and its all to Nora and her crew. I would recommend them without hesitation! They are so friendly and experienced.
