Local Business Spotlight

Sew Sew Studio

Sew Sew Studio is a quality-focused fabric shop and community-oriented sewing studio in Bogart Georgia. They carry a broad range of reliable and innovative Janome sewing and embroidery machines, a variety of notions and tools of the trade..


In Athens, local is everything.  Our town and surrounding counties thrive on our local small town atmosphere, where people know people and lend a helping hand to anyone who needs it. 

Live Local Athens is a way for me to be able to give back to a community that has supported my business for years.  It’s a way to help connect those people and businesses to others that may not have heard about them. It’s a way to provide information in a positive and helpful way to our community and, hopefully, become the place that people want to go to see what’s going on around town. 

Live Local,

Danielle Grier
