My Grandmother taught me how to sew during the summers when I was 8 years old. I was hooked. From then, I began altering old clothes to make new pieces all during school, taking garments apart and putting them back together for a fresh look. I spent many years as a professional dressmaker and retail merchandising of designer sportswear. Learn to sew with me and have the looks you really want. Beginners, intermediate or an expert that wants to sharpen your skills.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher! I arrived knowing absolutely nothing and I left feeling confident and excited about practicing everything I learned.

Haven't taken sewing classes since high school. This is a personalized option for adults that considers the "basics". Best for someone who wants to replicate favorite looks and learn how fabric and notions work together.

This was my first lesson with Carla. She was on time, professional and well prepared. This was a great experience because we set goals and identified my objectives for the class. I am looking forward to enhancing my sewing skills.
