in Amsterdam Zuidoost

Since our opening on 15th June 2020, our small school grew rapidly as a personal approach to sewing lessons. Despite the very difficult time for start-up businesses all around, the TNSS sewing community of students and teachers kept returning to the atelier lockdown after lockdown.

Working in

Our way of doing that starts with the working culture that The New Sewing School works to encourage and cultivate.

A working culture based on equilibrium, through the acknowledgement of the various ways in which people learn from each other.

The New Sewing School’s primary aim
is to be a creative environment for all
in a New way.

One which promotes developing sewing skills and creative connections through:
- Memory & recognition
- Consideration of individual working habits, strengths, limitations, wants and needs
- By boosting genuine confidence and independence for personal aspirations and more
