“There is a tremendous sense of accomplishment in creating a finished product,” says Suzanne Mancini, owner of The-Sew-Op. The Wickford resident opened the business in August as a much-needed creative learning space. A part-time instructor at RISD in the apparel department, she noticed many students arriving with little sewing experience. “I also found very few places to learn to sew in our area,” she says. Married with three children, Suzanne enjoys walking from home to the-sew-op, and being vested in the community. “My youngest student is 6 and my oldest is 83. It’s never too late to learn something new.”
