Teaching since:


I've been designing & sewing since childhood. My grandparents were keen for all parts of the arts. Learning to sew, embroider, knit, crochet, and oil paint. I attended school at the International academy of design & technology, in downtown Chicago. Earning my Bachelors degree in Fine Arts. I have been running my own business for 9 years. I had the opportunity to start my business working out of my home, using Etsy service, and currently have my own e-commerce site. I have been interning students for approximately 3 years now. Now, I would like to pass on my wisdom and knowledge to anyone who has an interest in learning how to sew, or anything in the Fashion Field. If there is something in particular in the Fashion World, please reach out. I am willing to work with you on a particular area. I am known to be very patient, friendly, and easy going.
