Beauty Bloggers Love Sewing

Well at least I was told that I would end up loving sewing after attending the “Beauty Bloggers Love Sewing” event at The Sewing Studio located in Toronto!

I was excited but also nervous to attend the event. You may or may not know but I’m not very domestic. I can’t even sew on a button – husband does that for me! And my mom always hemmed my pants as it was faster for her to do it rather than teach me how. And my mother in law is pretty handy on the sewing machine too so she has altered numerous items for me. Being surround by all these people who had basic to average sewing skills I guess you can say they enabled my inability to sew hahahaha!

Well, it was finally time to see what I was made of. It wasn’t the FIRST time I touched a sewing machine – don’t be ridiculous! I took shop and home economic courses in grade 7 :P. I remember fondly that I made an elephant shaped pillow and drawsting bag. I even painted the logo of my favorite basketball team on it (admitedly it was my dad that sketched out the logo for me – why the heck didn’t I get any of these creative genes?!?).

I was joined by fellow beauty bloggers Ella Pretty, Anjali of Rock That Look and Arianne of Glitter Geek. I was so happy to learn that none of us had any sewing skills to brag of although I suspect Ella Pretty was holding herself back so as to not make the rest of us feel bad 😛

Becky was our instructor and she was so patient with us. It’s lucky that none of in the group have “potty mouths” as there were a lot of “Oh no’s” and “Oh crap’s” going on.

And the inside – perfect to hold my most used brushes for travelling!
The studio itself is adorable! Located at 1225 Yonge Street (Yonge and Summerhill). Take a look at some shots I took before the class began:

The Sewing Studio is a fashion forward based studio perfect for beginners like me and for more advanced sewers. Offering “Fashion Camps” for teens, classes on alterations and home decor there is truly something for everyone. There are even private classes and sewing parties offered! As a bonus there is free studio time for any student that completed a class at the studio. How awesome is that?
If you’re in New York there is also a location there that seems to be growing and expanding daily!
I can’t wait to get started on my next project! Do you want to join me?  If you do, the kind people at The Sewing Studio have allowed me to offer you $25 off a 2 hour session (similar to the one I took), if you take it with me! It would be so fun to get a small group together and work on a simple project, wouldn’t it? Maybe we could even all graduate to a more advanced course…I know the alterations class would be super helpful for me!
So if you’re interested please email me at:  elainea(at)torontobeautyreviews(dot)com and we can connect and I’ll make arrangements 🙂
A special thank you to Stephanie Daga aka Blush Pretty, also the managing director for The Sewing Studio for the generous offer and the invite!
