How Saturday Sewing Sessions Pay Off big in a shared studio

How Saturday Sewing Sessions Pay Off big in a shared studio

Sure, it’s Saturday. But these bags aren’t gonna make themselves. But I'm not complaining: now I have a real studio to work in, with real industrial sewing machines. Vintage ones. . .like this Singer 241. And if I'm being really honest, sometimes I prefer coming in on Saturdays to avoid the weekday hustle and bustle of designers coming in and out with their patterns, materials, and phone conversations. So grateful that there's a place for small designers to make it big in NYC. 

UPDATE: Sadly Manufacture NY Garment Center Pilot Program closed in 2016 but I will be forever grateful for the camraderie of fellow designers to get my brand established in New York. I unearthed some old photos from Manufacture NY opening weekend circa 2013 and thought I should save them here for posterity.  💔
