New Beginnings!

New Beginnings!

If you haven't heard we are happily starting new businesses and closing Sew Dayton. It has been an awesome 4 years and we have learned so much about running a fabric, sewing and education business. We've both greatly grown it is simply time for us to both be running our own gigs of the same gaggle. 

Without your wonderful support we would of not been so successful, thank you. Sew Dayton in 4 years taught over 1,000 people how to sew, did twice as many alterations, custom orders and all in a friendly atmosphere. We also created a huge sewing community in Dayton that is gender, age and ethnic friendly. We all have one common thread.

We are winding down, we only have a few days left of Sew Dayton! We couldn't be more excited to venture out to teach more people and get deeper with the community! We hope you will be able to make it to our party on Tuesday, August 16th 5pm - 7pm!

Ok for the details! Tracy and Jesy will be starting up our own businesses.

Tracy - Tracy's Sewing Studio LLC

Tracy will become a mobile teacher, teaching at different locations, doing custom orders, alterations, online storefront (coming soon) and bringing the party to you!

You can contact Tracy directly through her website or email her at tracysews(at) and facebook.

Jesy - Needle, Ink and Thread

Jesy will have a fiber arts studio, her shop will be located at 4005 Dayton Xenia Rd, Beavercreek. She will be teaching the sewing, block printing, needle felting, knitting, crochet, and more! She will be taking alterations and making limited custom items.

You can contact her through her website through email needleinkandthread(at), or facebook!

We hope to see you all soon at with our new ventures.

Brooke is a native to Dayton and transplanted to Charleston, SC. She loves making up her own patterns and following bag patterns she finds. Her best advice for sewers is, "Don't sweat the small stuff and always blame any mistake on the bobbin." Her measuring tape, loop turner, chalk pen, and seam ripper are the notions she can't live without.

Check out their blog!
