They Had Big Plans for the Lockdown. This Is What Happened.

1024 683 Chase Jennings

As the pandemic drags on, some of us who had grand plans for self improvement as we sheltered in place are tearing up those to-do lists.

Indeed, Sewmark Sewing Machines, a store in the garment district, sold three times more machines this spring than a year earlier. Karen Lozner, 51, the founder of the Karen School of Fashion, noticed in March that fueled by fears of a shortage of masks, people began signing up to learn how to make them. And some, like Mr. Kallo, she said, “are staying with it. While they’re not working, they figure it might be nice to learn how to fix their pants.”

Or maybe, to expand their waistband for the extra “quarantine 15” pounds that some have packed on despite early stabs at exercise.

In April, interest for yoga classes surged, with about a third of sign-ups being first-timers, said Tori Milner, 48, an instructor at the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York, which went online after closing its Manhattan and Brooklyn studios.

We’re excited to announce that Karen’s School of Fashion was voted one of the best virtual summer camps for New York City Kids by the editors at Red Tricycle!

For the Budding Designer: Karen’s School of Fashion

Karen’s School of Fashion is holding weekly online camps for kids ages eight to 12 from June 22 to August 14. Each week has a new theme (“Project Runway Inspired”, “About Time: Fashion Duration”) that enables students to transform an idea into tangible form. (Yes, you need to have, and be familiar with, a sewing machine.) Kids will learn about a featured designer, imagine and sketch a clothing collection, learn to make patterns and finally sew a garment or two. Camp ends with a fashion show on Friday to showcase the creations. Call or e-mail before registering to confirm there is space.

Donation Masks Drop-Off — Group Effort

Donation Masks Drop-Off — Group Effort

1024 791 Chase Jennings

Hi Everyone!

Thank you to all of my students, who have contributed to such a great cause… #sewTOGETHER. Making masks for doctors and medical teams in our community. Proud to say that KSOF students have contributed to this cause by making 5 masks or more each to be donated to healthcare facilities in NJ and NYC. Medical teams can now wear these masks comfortably over a protective mask and reuse since they are washable.

Together in this group effort, we have enough masks to donate to the following healthcare facilities:

  1. Dr. Avi Werthaim – Doctors Care Center
  2. Old Bridge Drugs & Surgicals
  3. Mount Sinai Hospital – NYC (where Karen Lozner was born)

If you have not yet donated the masks you’ve made, please drop off THIS FRIDAY, April 3rd between 12 – 7pm at The Parisian Tea Room (165 Amboy Road, Suite 723 Morganville, NJ 07751).

There will be a white plastic bag attached to the door knob in which you can just drop in.

Before dropping off masks, please be sure to insert it into a clear ziplock bag and attach a note with your disclaimer,

“may be worn over a protective mask. This is NOT an N95 mask, but can offer some protection when worn alone. This is washable as the content is 100% cotton (lining and face) inside content is 100% polyester. Please wash and sanitize before wearing. Made with love by ——–“

Thank you again for your support! Be Safe & Stay Positive!

– Karen Lozner

This is the time to help! Yes! We can make a difference NOW! I have set aside my business to take care of a very important venture! PLEASE READ and LEARN HOW YOU TOO CAN HELP!

“Lower-grade or homemade masks are being used at many hospitals in non-COVID-19 cases to free up medical-grade masks for doctors and nurses treating COVID-19 patients. Homemade masks can also be used in conjunction with other masks to prolong the life of medical-grade masks, and can be washed for reuse. Some hospital staff are even sewing their own masks. By providing homemade masks to hospitals in dire need, we can help extend the current supply of medical-grade protective gear where it is needed most until additional resources become available. We’ve seen the power of our Tieks community in action many times before, and know that if we #SewTOGETHER, we can and will save lives together. Please share this page and offer with all your friends who sew.”

Thank you @tieks!

Dior Patchwork

750 1022 Karen

Inspired by the 60’s, Patchwork resurfaces into the world of Fashion and Feminity. As per Dior’s Instagram post, “Patchwork, by its nature is a technique overflowing with memory and association. This Autumn – Winter 2018 – 2019 collection  is no different. Inspired by the seminal feminist book, ‘The Subversive Stitch’, with its focus on textile crafts as a means of expression for woman.”

In moving with today’s latest trends and it’s meaning, KSOF is now incorporation Patchwork into every ‘Design, Sew & Textile’ class. Students will learn to create patchwork pieces that will be incorporated into their garments.
