Hello, my name is Brenda Holts and it has been my passion since I was 6 years old, to create, to sew and to design. For over 50 years I have been an experienced fashion designer, custom dressmaker and "Alterationist". I still enjoy creating my own designs and producing fashion shows, but my goal is to teach that which I have accumulated over the years to the next generation, so it doesn't become a lost art. I want to be able to share my knowledge of sewing so that the passion can continue into the generations to come. In my experience, the one thing that makes a good designer is their ability to sew, which is why I am currently teaching sewing classes for Home School programs and creating online sewing classes for Adults.
