Two WNY entrepreneurs are bringing the art of sewing to the next generation.
Mary Grabenstatter is the founder of Needle Sharp, a first-of-its kind sewing subscription box, based out of her residence.
Arlene Kaye, a veteran of the fashion industry, started her business, Fashion Lab NY last November. Fashion Lab is a skill-based learning studio which caters to ages seven to adult.
“Sewing is not only a skill, but I’ve seen kids and adults transform here, gaining more confidence- it’s a great social activity, it’s great to sew with other people,” Kaye said.
