How it all Began:

 Laura Nash began sewing and designing vintage-inspired gowns for brides and Moms while in college. After venturing into the world of fashion show competition,  high-end retail, and ready-to-wear, she realized her passion lay in sewing patterns. In 2007 Sew Chic Pattern Company was created featuring Laura’s unique mix of modernized vintage styles. They are classic, unique, and adaptable to your personal taste, and her approachable teaching style will help you sew with a speed, quality, and style that will be distinctly yours!
