I have been sewing for about 25 years now . My ability and love for it has grown with each experience. I have gone to school for fashion design and worked in the garment industry. My main growing experience has been my self taught lessons which brought me to more sewing focused jobs. Since then I have worked privately with people, adults and kids , in their sewing pursuit . The classes I have available now will be focusing on the pattern of your choice which we will break down and create over a few lessons depending on the difficulty or how long it takes. I will also encourage you to do some work at home if the time allows. I will ask that you bring a pattern and the fabric to the first class so we can get right to work. Most importantly, let's have fun in the world of sewing!
