Important Re-Opening Update:

As of June 18th we are open on an experimental basis. If during this time things go smoothly, we will be able to formally re-open. If not, we will need to retreat to appointments only.

The items below have been carefully thought out to make the most of your visit (i.e., you can actually fondle all the fabrics) but these procedures also will keep both our customers and our team safe.  

  1. We are open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  If later appointments are needed we can accommodate this in most cases.
  2. We are accepting walk-ins, but will limit capacity at any time to two visitors.  For this reason we continue to recommend appointments. To schedule, please call (203) 421-6853
  3. Please wear a mask upon entry to the store.
  4. Immediately proceed to our kitchen sink to wash your hands thoroughly.
  5. Neither hand sanitizer nor gloves are an acceptable alternative to hand washing.
  6. If you would prefer, you can continue to order via Etsy for curbside pickup

Thank you for your cooperation so we can all stay safe, and you can browse to your heart’s delight!

Best wishes,
CSM Team

What will you make today?

Cate’s Sew Modern opened its brick & mortar doors October, 2016, in order to bring together all manner of folks who want to revive the art of sewing.  Whether your interests lie in the area of quilting, clothing, home decor, totes/wallets, art/embellishment, dyeing/adulteration or slow stitching — and no matter what your age or skill level — we have you covered, so to speak.  We’ve got warmly-delivered expertise, frequent and varied classes, patterns researched carefully by drafters and designers from around the world, and the goods — oh, the goods!   

Goods being the fabric, of course:  Cate’s Sew Modern dynamically curates a selection approaching 3,000 bolts of unusual, exciting, and hard-to-find fabrics printed or woven in a variety of substrates, just waiting for you to discover them!  Our fabrics are created by many artists based in the US, but many others originate in Japan, Europe and Australia/NZ.  

Our scheduled classes cover the many techniques of garment sewing, quilt-making, and just about any project you can imagine sewing.   Our kids’ classes are emblematic of our vision for all: a focus on creativity and imagination first and foremost — a safe space for exploration and discovery.

Can’t wait to meet you.  And don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to receive information of new arrivals, specials, contests and events!
