Welcome to Sewing and Fitting Mentor

Are you frustrated with sewing or just don’t know where to start? Did your last project not turn out despite following the directions?

Sometimes it’s a matter of choosing the wrong pattern, not knowing how to adjust the pattern for accurate fit or fabric for your skill level. Other times, it’s a machine issue either with adjustment or operator error. Regardless, often all that is needed is a little help from another seamstress to get you through it.

Where are you in your sewing journey?

Hi! I’m Renee, your Sewing and Fitting Mentor, and I’m here to help. I’m here to assist you in overcoming roadblocks, to grow and hone sewing & fitting skills and accomplishing your project goals. We accomplish through sewing classes, events, mentoring & fitting services, and open studio sessions for sewists of all skill levels and backgrounds.

Had a project to finish ( Well start and finish) It was great to have this place available for me to use a sewing machine and have ReNee there for guidance when I needed it. I highly recommend this place.

It's wonderful to see there is a place where kids can still learn how to sew! Renee is a great teacher - not only knowledgeable, but also extremely patient, kind and encouraging. The students can't wait to get there every week and work on something new. Renee teaches them skills that then can be applied to projects of their choice. Some of the things her students are making are phenomenal! I am so glad my daughter was able to fit a sewing class into her schedule - she's already said she wants to continue!

Renee, her studio and kid sewing classes are delightful. One of my daughters has completed sewing a bag and pillow case and is moving on to pajama pants all within her first 6 lessons - I cannot recommend Renee and her classes enough - absolutely a hidden gem in Forest Lake! ~ Danielle A
I can’t say enough wonderful things - Renee is a master at her craft, she’s friendly, and extremely responsive. Recommend to anyone looking for bridal or special occasion alterations!

My 15 year old daughter looks forward to coming here each week. She has gained such great skill and knowledge. I know absolutely nothing about sewing so I was so grateful to find this place to mentor her. It really boosted her confidence and I am so impressed with the projects she chooses to sew.
