Hi, there! My name is Caitlin and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students learn the basics of sewing including cutting a commercial pattern, finishing your first sewing project, and learning new ways to look at sewing projects. I went to at SUNY Potsdam College and earned a degree in Costume Technology in 2012. I'm an enthusiastic and reliable person and my teaching style is hands-on, goal oriented, and designed to make sewing as fun as possible. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
