Trishtacsew Sewing school, in San Mateo, CA, offers small classes to teach kids the fun and empowerment of creating their own crafts and clothing.
Tricia Schroeter learned how to sew during home-ec class in middle school. She didn't sit in front of a sewing machine again for another 10 or so years before borrowing her mom's dusty old Singer to make a Halloween costume for her baby, Jacob. It turned out pretty cute! It was a shiny red stop sign that was as big as Jacob himself.
That was the start of a halloween tradition of hand-made costumes for Tricia and her family. She then started making costumes for her friends, other family members, and local theater productions.
When Tricia's kids were both in elementary school, Tricia juggled her full-time job in order to spend time volunteering in her kids' classroom. She helped with math and reading, but found she really enjoyed teaching art the most.
Trish is inspired every day by her students and she uses that inspiration when making cute things to sell in her shop.
Better yet, come join the fun, and learn how to sew yourself!
