All about us...

SEWLEANA IS LOCATED AT 12 W South Orange Ave, South Orange, NJ


 I've loved everything about sewing for as long as I can remember.  I love sharing my love for textiles, design, and sewing with others. 

I'm a proud native Floridian who majored in Studio Art at Brandeis University.  I then went on to study fashion design at Parsons School of Design before launching a career in bridalwear.  After a decade or so in the fashion industry, I decided to change gears and earned a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from NYU.  I taught in a K-12 setting as well as at the university level for 6 years. After many years of requests, I decided to delve into teaching sewing to kids and adults. 

SewLeana is the perfect blend of my two passions, sewing and teaching.  I am constantly perfecting both skills and looking for new ideas to add to my classes and camp.  Come learn and explore with us!
