  • Appointments will give you priority; we can plan for your visit.
  • Please wear a mask, and immediately proceed to our kitchen sink to wash your hands thoroughly–no gloves nor hand sanitizers.

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 lay in the area of quilting, clothing, light home decor, totes/wallets, art/embellishment, dyeing/adulteration or slow stitching — and no matter what your age or skill level — we have you covered. We’ve got warmly-delivered expertise, frequent and varied classes coming back this summer, 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 of over 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!  These 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.   Further, 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.
