Testimonials

My daughter started with FFW in the spring. Miss Renee taught her some sewing basics and quickly moved into teaching her how to make dresses that were fashionable and she enjoyed wearing. Her confidence level with sewing has grown tons, and she loves spending Saturday mornings working with Miss Renee. Thank you for a great experience!

My now 11 year old daughter has been attending Saturday workshops for over a year. She had no prior sewing experience, coming in only with her enthusiasm and a love of color, textures and fashion. She has completed really exciting pieces from dresses, tops, shorts- even a cape that she wore for Halloween. She now plans to sew a special top for her grandmother that is in a nursing home.

My daughter always looks forward to attending the Saturday morning workshops and really loves the different and fun trips to NYC. She plans to attend two different summer camps to continue her projects. Renee is wonderful with her, as well as the other girls that attend.

When I go to sewing every Thursday Mrs. Renee greets me with a welcoming smile. Mrs. Renee always has a variety of options when it comes to choosing fabric and the type of garment you want to make. She is also open to any new ideas you may have that match your personality and style. Mrs. Renee makes sewing fun and easy to learn!

My daughter Olivia age 11 has been taking classes with Mrs. Renee for about one year. She began with a week of summer camp and has been hooked since them. She really enjoys that Mrs. Renee allows her to choose whatever she wants to make. She has learned about different styles and what fabric works best for certain clothes. Mrs. Renee really assists her through the process and works with her closely on the sewing details. She has made a top, romper and jacket so far this year and proudly wears all of them. Olivia really enjoys the time she spends at her home workshop. She also has joined in for a few of the NYC fashion field trips and always comes home happy and ready to share about her fashion adventures.

My niece loves this class she can’t wait till Saturday rolls around so she can attend her Fashion Design Sewing Class. The Home Studio class has small size sessions, each designer has their own design they’re working on. They love to challenger each other and can’t wait to see what the other designer is making and her finished design. We can’t wait to sign up for Summer Fashion Camps! Ms Renee is patient, kind and very personable, the girls love her and how she is mentoring them to be who they want to be in fashion.

My daughter counts down the days until her next class at Fashion First. Renee is patient, kind and adapts her classes to the aptitude and interests of the students. It’s the most affordable sewing class around, which is refreshing!

My daughter has attended several after-school Fashion First Workshops and also a week at the summer camp program. She has created some really interesting, well-made pieces, all of which she loves to wear. I am thrilled that she is learning to sew on a sewing machine – which I feel is becoming a lost art in today’s younger generation. Thank you, Renee for providing this opportunity for my daughter to express herself in fashion design and learn the skill of sewing. You never know where it may lead in her future!
