We help fashion LOVERS make money from THEIR PASSION FOR FASHION.
DO YOU LOVE FASHION?
THEN TURN YOUR LOVE FOR FASHION INTO A SELLABLE SKILL!
Welcome to Martwayne – where creative people get the training they need to make a living doing what they love.
If you have an eye for style and a desire to make something beautiful, then you have what it takes to create things that people will love.
We will help you learn the skills you need to turn your passion for fashion into a career—or even just a hobby that will earn you some extra cash!
SEW FOR FUN, SEW FOR MONEY
Sewing is fun. It’s relaxing and therapeutic with great health benefits. And it’s a great way to make money!
With our sewing classes, you can learn how to sew clothes, then design and produce them for sale. It’s a win-win situation: you get to make clothes that you love, and then sell them to others who will love them too!
TURN YOUR CREATIVITY INTO A CAREER
If you love to sew, why not make some extra money at it?
Our sewing courses will teach you everything you need to know about designing and producing garments from start to finish – from pattern drafting and fabric manipulation, all the way through garment assembly.
We will walk you through every step of the process so that at the end of the course you’ll have your own line of clothing ready for production.
Now rather than sticking with just ready-made patterns, you can come up with your own original designs and create your own clothing line!
Before attending Martwayne, I was a frustrated banker who wanted to pivot. Meeting Tope helped shape & started my career. Martwayne will always be in my success story.
My first experience with everything that goes into doing anything fashion in a structured way was at Martwayne
BE THE VOICE OF OTHERS.
START A FASHION MOVEMENT!
Imagine that feeling you get when you go shopping and find nothing that fits but you have to buy it anyway because it’s the only thing that came close.
NOW imagine how many other millions of people out there are just like you – craving for where to get clothes that fit but stuck with the second or third options they find in the stores! Petite sizes, plus sizes, taille, unique body shapes?
Imagine creating a brand with a voice just for you and people like you? Well, now you can!
With our sewing courses, you can create clothes that speak volumes about you and others just like you!
Having your own fashion brand, no matter how little, is one of the best ways to express yourself and your values. And it can start from simply making your own clothes.
Imagine what it would mean for someone else who connects with your clothes because they can instantly see that they were crafted by someone who understood them and their unique challenges.
Imagine starting a movement for people just like you! Being that voice that desperately needs to be heard. We think that’s pretty special!

HYBRID SEWING CLASSES IN NYC
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to sew, but your busy schedule doesn’t leave you with time, why not simply take a class with us once a week.
With Martwayne’s hybrid sewing classes in NYC, you’ll get the most out of your sewing experience with our hybrid approach, which combines the best of both worlds: online learning and in-person classes.
The online component of our course teaches different sewing and pattern drafting techniques which you learn during the week in your own time. While the in-person classes, which hold right in the heart of Manhattan, give you the opportunity to receive personalized feedback from an experienced instructor on your project, while networking with others.
Our curriculum covers different types of skirts, bodices and trousers – a whole lot more than you learn in other sewing schools who teach just an item or two of clothing. You will design your own clothes using your own measurements instead of using pre-made patterns!
PLUS! You not only learn how to make the clothes, you learn how to price your clothes so you can make a profit from each outfit using our very own special spreadsheet which we developed for creatives and small businesses.
At the end of the Short Course, you will not only know how to create your own patterns and unique size chart for your market, you will also have an established system for billing for your work which will skyrocket your sales and income!
ONLINE SEWING CLASSES
Not in New York City but still want to benefit from our sewing and pattern drafting classes?! Then our online alternative is perfect for you!
We know that you want a career in fashion, but we also know that it can be hard to find the time or money for in-person classes.
That’s why we offer a completely on-demand online option so you can learn wherever you are in your time at at your convenience.
The classes are taught by our instructor with over 12 years of experience teaching beginners how to sew without overwhelming them with unnecessary details or technical jargon.
You will learn everything from stitches, sewing techniques and patterns, through more advanced techniques like fitting alterations, all while making your own patterns from scratch.
You will also learn how to properly bill for your work using an easy spreadsheet created just for creatives so you can begin to make a profit from Day 1!
So why not take our Online Sewing & Pattern drafting Classes and learn various outfits – from skirts to bodices and dresses, sleeves and pants using your own measurements.
We designed them for students like you who need flexibility in their schedule but still want top quality instruction to learn their craft and work with clothing manufacturing firms to produce their fashion brand.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hi! I’m Temi Williams, and I believe in empowering people to make a living doing what they love.
As an accountant in one of the Big Four global accounting firms, I saw the power of numbers to build businesses and help people grow their dreams. But I also realized I could add so much value to people over and above crunching numbers and reading tax laws. So I resigned my job and went to fashion school to pursue my passion and fill a need.
I know that what makes a business truly successful is passion—passion for your product, passion for your customers, passion for your community. That’s why I’m passionate about empowering individuals to make a living for themselves doing what they love.
For over a decade, I have trained thousands of fashion designers who have done just that: created successful businesses from scratch and gone on to win international awards and secure funding for their fashion start ups.
I have also worked with NGOs and international organisations to train unemployed youths to make a living in order to feed themselves and their families. I also ran a clothing manufacturing firm for aspiring fashion designers looking to start their fashion brands in small scale.
That’s why I became a Certified Business Mentor with Score NYC — to continue to help aspiring fashion designers start and grow their clothing lines.
If you’re looking to get started with your own clothing line, or just want to learn how to sew for yourself, friends and family either for fun or for money, then look no further!
Let me help you get started today!
Just when I was about to give up my search for a fashion school, I stumbled upon Martwayne. I got value for my money and more!
I would say Martwayne gave me the confidence to start a fashion business. Definitely one of the best decisions I made.
One of my constant challenges was lack of customers to patronize my business. I discussed my challenges with her. I did exactly what she advised. Like magic, it worked.
Built2Bill is such a wonderful system. When we used it to calculate everything, we were actually running at a loss!
