ARTeries Fashion Sewing School

 Ensuring the Art of Sewing is Not Lost
Established in Asheville’s River Arts District in 2007 by teaching fashion artist Stina Andersen.  
ARTeries Fashion Sewing School (AFSS)  is  an independent school that focuses on eco fashion principles and artistic aesthetics to provide quality instruction to students of all ages and backgrounds. 

We have two semesters annually and offer monthly summer school concentration weeks for ages 16  and up and two weeks of  half/ or full day summer camp for kids 7-15. 

Fall semester runs September-November  and Winter/Spring runs January-May. We sell  four, eight and twelve week pack classes. We offer beginner, intermediate group classes monthly, Private lessons scheduled as a time allows for beginner to advanced  draping and pattern making. We do our best to meet the needs of all students in their individual creative journey.
 AFSS’ first official Student Fashion Show was launched in September 2021. Click Here to watch a video of the Fashion Show
