Hello! I'm happy to be considered as your future sewing teacher!

A little bit about myself, I started sewing when I was around 8 years old with my grandmother and I've been passionate about it ever since! I've worked for many different sewing companies over the years, doing everything from hemming signs and banners to creating custom corsets. After getting frustrated by the lack of variety in commercial sewing patterns I went and got my degree in Apparel Pattern Design. One thing you'll learn as we get to know each other is that I love costuming of all kinds, particularly historical costuming!

I strongly emphasize machine care and maintenance in my lessons. I've found that a great many of the problems people have when trying to learn to sew can be solved by properly operating and caring for their machines.

Elizabeth helped me re-learn how to sew when she was just a teenager. She's patient and was wonderful at helping me figure out what I may have done wrong when things went weird, and how to prevent it in the future. In just one day, I had an adorable new dress for my daughter.

Elizabeth has been my go-to seamstress for five years. Be it cloth banners for my non-profit or the many costumes I have designed, Elizabeth has made them all with great focus and energy.

Elizabeth is definitely the perfect teacher for you! She has an amazing historical background and she is an expert on renaissance costumes, embroidery, beading, different sewing techniques, patterns, and so on. She has also the knowledge and expertise required to teach beginners and advanced students! Hope you learn from her as much as I did.

Elizabeth has created many things for myself and my daughter. Every item was a perfect fit and exactly what we asked for, and sometimes even better than what we asked for! She is a brilliant seamstress who I wouldn't hesitate to hire as a permanent designer for every thing I wear if I could afford to! You simply can't go wrong with her. Take note as this young lady is going places! Be one of the few who can say "I learned from her!"

I went to so many Fashion Design classes together. She is definitely the one who knows everything about sewing and patterns. She is very well educated and professional teacher I would recommend.

I had been studying with this AMAZING AND TATLENTED lady for around 1 and half year at El Centro College in Fashion design major. I don't write this review because she is my friend. But I believe with all of my heart that she is a hard work, a great student and she would be super fantastic teacher. Her sewing is always on top of my classes. And there is no one would be able to beat that tatlented lady. All of my professor and my classmates adore her, like, forever.
She is so great with detail jobs, beautiful designs and outstanding skills. I promise you one thing that You won't ever feel like wasting your time if you take class with her.
Oh Lord, I could write a long essay about her and the beautiful journal we had been together at school.
