Astitchworks' founder is Jumiah Haji Ujud started teaching couture sewing classes out of her attic room on East Coast in 2003. She wanted to share all her sewing skills and techniques she had learned from her 30 years to these cities/other countries growing the number of dressmakers and designers.  Word of these independently run classes spread, and what had started as a class in dressmaking, quickly expanded to numbers that outgrew her loft apartment.

Since then, this has been the mission of the Astitchworks Concepts, starting from bespoke tailoring to progressively the sewing program that could include the skills for public needs to know to better navigate the fashion industry competitive environment.  She believes that in order to effectively perpetuate her business from one generation to the next, she encourages a sense of extended family, Sadiq Dinarro and Nur Salinah to engage in developing the business.  Furthermore, “Giving back,” a key value in successful family business, helps to support a philosophy of material importance.
