I started sewing at age 8 (thanks mom!)
I have a degree in technical theatre with an emphasis in costume design and technology. I design costumes for community theatres, opera companies and drag queens.
I helped teach sewing and costuming during my degrees. I believe in starting beginners with familiarizing themselves with their machines and how to read patterns.
I would love to share my years of experience designing, sewing and crafting with you!

Music and the arts have been a large part of my life since I was a child.
I have performed in numerous operas, musicals and plays. Favorite roles include the Witch in Into the Woods, Agathe in Der Freischutz, the Countess in Marriage of Figaro, and Fastrada in Pippin.
I have a degrees in Opera Directing, Vocal Performance and Theatre Arts. I started teaching acting classes in 2001, and have coached voice since 2010. I have studied voice with James Gardner, former head of opera at Julliard School of Music, Matthew Oglesby, vocal area coordinator for the WTAMU School of Music, and Darlene Wiley, head of voice department at Butler School of Music, UT and William Lewis, dramatic tenor with 35 years experience singing at the Metropolitan Opera.
I direct operas, design costumes, teach whenever and whatever I can, and love spending time with my cat.
Really enjoyed my lessons with Jessica. She is a very personable and gifted patient instructor. So I never felt intimidated learning how to sew since it was all new to me. Thank you Jessica.
Absolutely fantastic!! Very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ll definitely be booking her again!!
Jessica is awesome! She is warm, patient, and kind. We hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next lesson. Heather. ;-)
