I signed up for Sew It Academy because I was frustrated with buying clothes that didn't really fit me the way I would like them to. My weight had been fluctuating for few years and I couldn't just pull "my size" off the rack anymore. I've always enjoyed creating things, but sewing never crossed my mind until I found Mimi on Pinterest and was so inspired by her work, and from there discovered Sew It Academy and jumped on it as soon as I could! I'd never touched a sewing machine before, but her courses are so informative and easy to follow. Mimi is an outstanding teacher! I've jumped into making garments for myself and there's no greater confidence boost than having something fit you perfectly, and knowing that you made it! This is one of the best decisions I've made for myself.

Sew It Academy was much more than I first thought it would be. I had not sewn for 3 years prior and learned basics in 1999. SIA changed the game. I learned updated techniques for basics, built my knowledge of drafting and draping; also techniques to help with tailoring. I was skeptical how I would be able to learn online when I have difficulty learning in general. Both Mimi and Norris teach and speak in a way, along with demonstration, that anyone could learn how. Best investment for me since the tools gained has lead me to having my own successful business! 10/10 stars!

I’ve been a Sew It! Academy student since it first opened. Although I had already been sewing I enrolled because I’ve never had any formal sewing instruction. I’m so glad I signed up. I’ve learned something new in every single class I’ve taken. I’ve learned how to draft a bodice and skirt sloper, how to trace RTW clothes to recreate them and slew of other sewing techniques. Just this month I learned how to properly cut fur. Each month I look forward to see what I will learn in the new class. Best investment I could ever make for myself in improving my craft. Thank you Mimi!

SIA currently has over 30 classes ranging in skill level. Although we strongly suggest you follow the paths in order (Course #1, #2, etc.), you can skip ahead if you are an intermediate sewist. SIA offers courses on sewing, patternmaking, draping, special techniques, and much more.

Mimi G began Mimi G Style, Inc. to share my expertise with everyone I possibly could reach. I felt that the art of sewing was not being taught in a way that was making a real difference and engaging people to try something they never thought to do. I launched Sew It Academy because I wanted to help anyone feel empowered by learning a new skill and possibly turn that new skill into a small business. We started Sew It Academy Menswear because there are no outlets or resources for individuals wanting to learn to sew menswear.
