Urban Sewing Lounge Offers Crafters a Place to Gather
As do-it-yourself projects have become a major movement in recent years, people are once taking up needle and thread to create their own clothing, home décor and more. In Monterey, California, they're gathering at Bella's Studio, an urban sewing lounge.
As do-it-yourself projects have become a major movement in recent years, people are once taking up needle and thread to create their own clothing, home décor and more.
For instance, take the young military wives who flock to Bella's Studio in downtown Monterey, California, who congregate to work on sewing projects, talk and connect.
"They'll find something on Pinterest that they want to make, and they'll come in and say, 'How do I do this?'" said Bella Lofaso Brancato, owner of the sewing lounge, which offers sewers and crafters not just work space, but also state-of-the-art sewing machines, tools and advice.
Strangely enough, where sewing and crafting is concerned, high tech has sparked a low-tech revival. The Internet is now bursting with ideas for DIY crafts and handmade items, complete with instructions, photos and videos. It's encouraged a whole new generation to get busy making things at home.
To meet the demand, a new kind of business is popping up - urban sewing lounges, now opening in cities around the country as a place to learn while doing, get some support, and meet other like-minded people.
Brancato opened the studio in its present location three years ago, but she has been teaching people how to sew for decades. Her students now range from age 6 to 90 at the studio, and Brancato loves how the shared love of sewing can bring a variety of different ages and talents together.
"There's a steady group of people who come," she said, either for lessons or for the Open Studio time, when people can bring in whatever project they want to work on.
Brancato herself has been sewing since she was a child. She remembers her first project vividly - a blue plaid shirt that she made when she was 6 years old. "I was so proud of that - I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread." She credits her grandmother, an avid seamstress, for encouraging her when she was young.
Although most of the skills involved in sewing haven't changed since that time, the technology certainly has. The latest sewing machines line one area of the studio, as well as an embroidery machine and a serger, used in sewing knit fabrics. Also available at the studio are a variety of tools used in sewing as well as oversized work tables where people can spread out, and a sewing and crafting library.
Brancato also sells fabric pieces in sets that have been color-coordinated, making it easier for sewers to choose projects, and later this year will offer her own patterns under the Bella's Studio label.
In addition to teaching classes herself, Brancato has welcomed a number of guest instructors to her studio.
Brancato's goal is keep the studio open and accessible to anyone who wants to learn to sew, even if they have no experience at all.
"Sometimes people just don't know where to start, and if they walk into a fabric store, they get totally overwhelmed," said Brancato. She eases them into sewing by offering some options to choose from, as well as gentle encouragement and support.
The stitchers who show up for Open Studio time also lend advice and opinions, and Brancato has seen friendships form between her students. In the cozy setting, mothers often bring their babies and toddlers as well, and parents and kids will do projects together.
And it's a trend that will keep growing, she said.
"I really don't see the do-it-yourself (movement) waning - I see it continuing," said Brancato.
