My mother taught me how to sew when I was 10 years old. In 2010 I received my BFA in Costume Design & Technology, and have since been working in costume shops for professional theatres all over the country. Sewing is an extremely versatile and practical skilll that seems to sadly be losing popularity. Let's change that! I will tailor all lessons specific to your skill level and areas of interest.
