As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.
Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.
Look forward to creating with you all!

You get a great sense of satisfaction from being able to pick up a simple piece of paper and making it into a piece of art!
