I started sewing on my Grandmother's antique Singer when I was 13 years old. I would spend more time sewing than I would on my homework! After I graduated high school I went to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to study fashion design with an emphasis in costume. I've been working as a costume designer for film, commercials and theater for the past 10 years. I'm thrilled to share my knowledge with students of all levels and ages and to help them reach their goals.
