Sewing enthusiasts and curious quilters alike will be eager to check out the new sewing studio in Fort Thomas at 118 N. Fort Thomas Ave. which is set to open Monday, Aug. 13.

The location is directly next to Fort Thomas Coffee.

The new shop, called Just Sew, is operated by Fort Thomas resident April Pryor and her mother. The location will feature special fabrics as well as sewing and quilting classes by local experts. Whether you consider yourself a beginner or an expert, Just Sew offers something for all levels of learners.

Some may ask ‘why open up a sewing shop?’

Well, for Pryor, it’s a family hobby that has spanned three generations and they’re excited to share it with others.


“Sewing has always been a part of our home. This store will be run by my mom, myself and my daughters,” said Pryor, “We noticed a gap between the older generation which sews and younger generations who are just now learning in school or in classes. We hope to bridge the gap for that in-between generation and teach them the basics.”
