La Movida Sewing & Design Studios
3625 West Broadway
La Movida has two beautiful studios for the artistic community to meet and exchange ideas. They specialize in quality instruction in sewing, textile design and illustration for all abilities from ages 8 and older. Whether you are just starting out, or dreaming of becoming the world’s next fashion star – they have something for you.
La Movida Sewing & Design Studios offer professional, engaged and dynamic instruction which brings together sewing, design, pattern drafting, pattern manipulation and illustration. Originating in 1987 as La Movida Design, Laurie Allan-Franks began this company as a clothing line designed and manufactured in Vancouver, with distribution throughout Western Canada. Since then, they have evolved to become La Movida Sewing & Design Studios, a creative applied arts studio specializing in teaching sewing, illustration, and design.
Their highly developed teaching method, in collaboration with our own sewing workbooks and patterns, allows students from all skill levels and abilities the opportunity to have the most relevant information delivered to our students in the most meaningful way. Utilizing the very best supplies, machines, products, and with a curated selection of fabric and notions, they aim to be the best place from budding sewers to those dreaming of becoming the world’s next biggest fashion star.
