Education and Qualifications

school: Purdue University

Three generations of women taught me every sewing skill that they knew, and I have been sewing since early childhood. After graduating college I was a professional costumer for five years. I learned to draft patterns, and how to work with different fabrics to achieve the desired effects. If I could see a picture of the garment, I could make it. Since I was working at a college, I had the opportunity to teach students how to sew. These students had little to no experience. After that, I sold sewing machines and fabric for both So-Fro and Joann's. Fast forward 27 years, I am back working part time at Joann's and discovered that the most asked question is "where can I learn to sew" So, I decided to offer sewing lessons. My approach is very practical, teaching to whatever level necessary. I take the stress, pressure and fear away from learning to sew.
