About The SewinCraft Studio


The SewinCraft Studio is a place where creating with fabric is our passion, and the needle and thread are the means by which we bring this passion to life! We have licensed sewing instructors for Kids Can Sew & Fashion Design and Learn To Sew with You Can Make It; two nationally acclaimed sewing programs for kids and teens. These programs teach sewing skills that will enable you to design and create something uniquely yours. Just imagine… choosing your own fabric combinations to sew a matching dress for you and your American Girl doll, a tote bag for fun sleepovers, or even an apron for your grandmother. The possibilities are endless! Once you learn HOW to sew, you can dazzle your family and friends with wonderful gifts.

Nancy Mathews: Owner/Instructor

Sewing and creating go hand in hand and together they are my passion. I have sewn for family and friends most of my life and until recently owned an Interior Decorating business, designing and constructing home fashions.  I am a member of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals and hope to teach your children the skills that will enable THEM to design and create with fabric. The Kids Can Sew & Fashion Design curriculum is an excellent beginner program that provides a building-block approach to teaching sewing skills. Many of our advanced Teen Sewing & Fashion Design students continue learning about garment construction and design in preparation for a degree in Fashion Design.


JayneJayne Arsenault: Instructor

Picking up a needle, thread and an old sock, Jayne began her sewing adventures at 5 years of age making stuffed animals. Over the years her love for beautiful fabrics and their use in constructing clothing and home fashions led her to pursue a Bachelors degree in Interior Design and later owning her own Interior Design business. As a resident of Wake Forest she has taught sewing classes and handled the costuming and set design for children’s musicals with her church group. She has also taught sewing at Wake Technical College. Currently she sews professionally for all that enhances ones home and is working toward developing her own line of fabrics.


Kerry Dallin: Instructor

Kerry started sewing as a child. Her mother was a home economics teacher before opening a fabric shop in Hampton Bays, NY and it was there that she learned how to sew clothing, quilts, and everything crafty! A theatre major in college, but when not performing she worked in the costume shop teaching students basic sewing techniques and learning how to build stage costumes. She used those skills in professional theatre in New York. Now residing in Wake Forest, Kerry has her own business sewing handmade items for craft fairs and consignment shops. She also teaches dance at Destiny Dance Institute.


Having sewing skills will give you a lifetime of creativity and enjoyment. Come join us at the studio where we are ready to teach you to
