Passion & Talent
Sewing has been my passion since I was about 6 years old. Over the years my passion expanded into a life long journey that has given me rich experiences in the cut and sew industry. My 50 plus years has entitled me to be a fashion designer, custom dressmaker and alterationist. I have created my own designs and produced several fashion shows including my own debut fashion show of original designs. But in the past few years, I have truly enjoyed teaching the knowledge that I have acquired and sharing that knowledge and passion to the next generation. In my experience, the one thing that makes a good designer is their ability to sew and construct a garment professionally. This is why I am currently teaching classes to Home School Programs and creating online sewing classes for adults.
