NYAM Studio is a Work in Progress.

Welcome to NYAM Studio. NYAM Studio is a bit closer to opening. Seventeen days has passed since the beginning of the process and everything is progressing well. In just seventeen days, a vacant hollow space has been transformed into a sewing studio. All of the business applications are complete. Now, I can purely focus on the finishing touches needed before I get to the wonderful part of sewing.

Let me show you around the studio thus far.

Cutting Station – This is where all cutting will take place. A professional cutting table and a couple of vintage sewing chairs will get plenty of use as patterns are drafted  and fabrics are laid out and cut.

Pressing Station – This is where a wide ironing board, tailoring hams, sleeve boards, and a gravity fed iron are used to press seams and wrinkles.

Fabric Storage – The bookshelves are used to neatly store fabric. After unpacking the boxes, I realized that this is a lot of fabric. When, I first started sewing my mother asked ” Will you be one of those sewing ladies that will have have tons of fabric but never sew anything?” I laughed and responded, ” Of course not. Well, that is not my intention.”

Welcome to NYAM STUDIO

Today marks the beginning of the journey of NYAM Modern Vintage, An Artisan Clothing Brand in the new NYAM Studio. However, the beginning of my interest in the sewing started seven years ago. I’ve had an interest in sewing for many years, but I never could find the time to learn. Then, a few years ago the opportunity presented itself and I decided to pull out a basic singer school model sewing machine and give sewing a try. I would break out in a sweat at the thought of simply threading the sewing machine. Determine to learn, I solicited help from a cousin that works as a seamstress at a local tuxedo shop. After a few lessons, I spent hours reading pattern instructions and any sewing manuals I could find. In the process, I fell in love with the vintage esthetic and the design details of vintage garments and designs. Determined to make a garment on my own, I spent hours cutting a McCalls pattern and sewing a shirt in an Indian batik fabric. That was the very first garment that I made without any assistance using a four step button hole and I was really proud. Well, that was only the beginning and now I would like to welcome you to NYAM STUDIO.
