I'm a seamstress/fashion designer and I've been sewing since 2002 and have a fond love for it. Since learning to sew, over the years I have build my client base and I make a variety of custom garments from skirts, dresses, pants, tops, etc for my clients.

I have always had a love for fashion and when I started sewing it opened up numerous possibilities to be creative and be able to make anything!

I teach sewing classes at the local community centers as well as private sewing lessons at my home. I've taught kids from the age range of 7-17 as well as adults from 18-65.

From the beginning stages of sewing to the more advanced stages I am able to walk you through the process. I use store patterns in addition to creating my own patterns through self drafting.

I look forward to working with any students that sign up for my classes!
