Ages 7+ and special needs

Teaching since:

I am a professional seamstress and have spent 18+ years in marketing, animal welfare, teaching, and creative roles.

For several years I have been teaching children and adults intro and specialty sewing classes, given private lessons, hosted parties, and ran summer camps. I also service sewing machines and sergers where I've gained knowledge of the mechanics and performance of various makes/models, and like to be able to share this information with my students so they can get the most out of their machine.

As part of my custom sewing business I work with clients on a wide range of projects, like remaking their favorite garments, producing items they've designed, creating custom home decor pieces, and just about anything else that can be sewn.

I love sewing and the creative expression it offers, and really like seeing how my students apply their newfound sewing skills.
