Description

Suzanne Mancini opened The-Sew-Op in 2016 after recognizing that her students at RISD had little to no sewing experience. Located in North Kingston, Rhode Island, The-Sew-Op’s goal is to provide a place where children and adults can learn to sew. Regarding location, a storefront close to a school was important. When local tailoring and quilting stores closed, Suzanne hired staff to do alterations and teach quilting classes. After four years in business, the pandemic struck. Rhode Island Commerce helped Suzanne design a website with a large interface, saving her business. She is now in a bigger store with parking, but still near Wickford Middle School.
