"Hey there, I'm Claire. I graduated from University of California, Irvine with a degree in Drama with an emphasis in Costume Design. I have been sewing for over 20 years now. I have been sewing professionally for over 10 years. My mother taught how to sew at a very young age. I really took to it because I love seeing how a piece of square fabric turns into a beautiful dress. I found it to be magic. After all these years, I still get pure joy seeing the magic happen right before my eyes. I put a lot of heart into my projects when I can. Sometimes the orders are needed so quickly that I just bust out the garment. It took me a while to hear my calling for sewing. I am so passionate about what I do that I find every little job I can in sewing. I honestly never truly work since I love what I do. Also with sewing, there's so much to continue to learn. Different countries and cultures have different techniques. I have fast and easy sewing techniques all the way to haute couture sewing techniques. I love teaching sewing because I do my best to spread the magic of that square piece of fabric into a beautiful ball gown. Seriously, it's magical.

I have tutored sewing here and there, mainly I work in costume shops and want to bring a fading art back to life. I , also, have coached softball and baseball for many years as I used to play both sports. Still love the game very much but had to change my focus to my career of Costume Design.

I show lots of passion in what I teach/coach, I will bring out the passion in you as well. I am very patient in teaching and coaching. I do my best to make each lesson fun and have the student see progress after each lesson.

I have been in theater for over 10 years, working many kinds of shows from theme park shows to feature films and everything in between. I mainly focus on stage shows like musical theatre, plays and now operas. Everything I have learn in my field I will teach in my lessons. All the tricks of the trade.

As of now, my weekends are open, I can work during the week so pleas" less...
