Thanks for your interest! Over the past 20 years I have done a lot of sewing and I want to share what I have learned with you. I have been industry trained in sewing machine, server, and embroidery machine operation. I have professional experience in slipcovers, costumes, formal wear, custom garments, copy ready to wear, embroidery digitizing, home decor, pattern drafting, and alterations. Over the years I have designed and taught numerous workshops on machine operation, seasonal projects, woven and knit garments, machine embroidery, flat pattern alterations, and fashion analysis. I am looking forward to seeing you at the shop!

Shannon has years of experience working with customers and helping them with what they need, whether it be a sewing machine, a special technique, or advice drafting and fitting or altering garments. Her always positive and fun attitude toward solving problems is refreshing and motivating. She also digitizes custom designs for embroidery machines to personalize items as gifts or for sale.

Shannon is very knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and sewing equipment. She can teach at all levels from beginning to expert, in group and private classes. And what a lovely person she is too! You really get your money's worth in improved skills.
