Sew Much Fun
650 Durham Rd #6
Newtown, PA 18940
Sew Much Fun Studios was created by Lisa Shull, of The Fabric Loft, who has been running a successful custom window treatment and design business for over 30 years. She has taken her sewing skills to the next level by opening a sewing studio to teach others and spread the love for sewing. Sew Much Fun Studios is a fun and exciting place for kids and adults to learn the basic skills such as hand sewing, working on a sewing machine, working with patterns and much more. There are many creative projects to choose from on all skill levels and the studio has a huge selection of fabrics, felt, buttons, ribbon and other embellishers to personalize each project.
The studio is located at Wrightstown Health & Fitness on Durham Road in Wrightstown and offers morning, after school and Saturday classes. Each class is 1 ½ hours long and limited to 2 – 3 students. Classes are grouped into four sessions and students are guaranteed to make a fabulous project during each class. Both the parents and the kids are amazed at the great things we create and, after just one class, students can’t wait to come back! Adults are enjoying our classes as a refresher or as a new found hobby. Special requests, such as learning to hem pants or making pillows are also welcomed.
Visit www.SewMuchFunStudios.com for pictures of students and their projects and get more information on how you can sign up and start having sew much fun!
Lisa hopes to see you soon. She would also like to thank all of her customers who have used her services throughout the years and have continued to support her in her new business ventures in the Bucks County area.

We believe live performance is the most fun and effective way to teach an instrument, which is why we get kids playing on stage as quickly as possible.
