July 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Creative Learning Corporation (OTCBB:CLCN) owner and developer of Bricks 4 Kidz®, and Challenge Island®, the highly-popular children’s education and enrichment programs, is pleased to announce the roll out of its third franchise concept – Sew Fun Studios®. The Sew Fun Studios® model introduces the art of sewing to children and adults by utilizing basic and advanced sewing techniques. Sew Fun Studios® has been operating for over five years in Charlotte, NC under the trade name Sew Fun Parties®. When Creative Learning Corporation acquired the rights to franchise Sew Fun, the Company changed the name to Sew Fun Studios. Brian Pappas, CEO of Creative Learning Corporation stated, "We are all very excited with the launch of Sew Fun Studios. It’s taken a little longer than we would have liked, but everything is now in place for a successful roll out. With no national competition and only a handful of moms and pops out there, Sew Fun Studios will be in a great position to aggressively develop this unique franchise concept. Such economic conditions are reminiscent of the early days of Bricks 4 Kidz."
As a mother of three, Wendy Berglass, the Founder of Sew Fun Studios found herself attending countless birthday parties and began noticing that each one was essentially the same. It was time for a change. She thought back to the numerous occasions when her daughters and their friends would spend hours in her sewing room creating things they could be proud of. "I thought that if I could think of simple seamed projects that can be completed in 90 minutes, I’d be onto something." That’s when Wendy decided to establish Sew Fun Parties (now Sew Fun Studios) and a new, unique kind of party was born. Wendy started with just birthday parties five years ago, but now operates after-school classes, field trips, summer and holiday camps, ladies night out, and soon courses in fashion and interior design. Wendy states, "With home economics no longer offered in most schools, there lies a huge opportunity to teach children 6 and over the art of sewing and design."
