From Our Editors
The New York Sewing Center's founders all bring an extensive background in fashion and construction to their classes. Kristine Banasik, for instance, boasts not only degrees in fashion design and merchandising, but years of experience plying her trade for companies that include Ford Models. Kelly Grey holds a fashion-design degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and Charlene Washington sharpened her skills at The Fashion Institute of Technology; they both boast impressive credits on their professional résumés, as well. The ladies impart all they've learned through group classes and private lessons. They cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from basic sewing techniques to how to turn old shirts into baby clothes or how to build fashionable men's and women's wear from scratch.
