Hello! My name is Karla and I love all things artsy and crafty. I learned to sew when I was 9 and have been improving my skills since then by taking classes or just trying things out on my own. I'm currently taking classes to get certified as a Pattern Maker, which is another passion of mine linked to the fashion industry. I've also spent the last year and a half building my Etsy shop for custom designed clothing for women and children. Since I also have my degree in Theater and Dance I enjoy being a freelance costume designer for dance or theater companies; creating custom designs for their shows.

Karla was great! She was helpful and patient and have great feedback. I was skeptical about doing an online sewing class but she had a great camera which allowed her to zoom on her stitching so you could see exactly what to do! I will be signing up for more classes :)

Karla is an amazing designer and seamstress. Every time I see one of her creations I marvel at her skill! Plus she has a great personality for teaching -- she's caring, fun, communicative, and motivating. You would be in excellent hands with her as your instructor.

Karla is the BEST teacher EVER! Everyone knows the old saying "practice makes perfect", but with Karla it's "perfect practice makes perfect". In other words, she'll instruct you in the proper techniques from the beginning so you don't develop bad habits. If your just a beginner, or looking for more intermediate tutelage you couldn't be better off. I very strongly recommend trying her out.
Don't be shy with questions either! she'll take the time to show you. Happy creating!
