Since I learned to sew when I was 9 from my home-ec teacher mother, I've been at a machine--making clothes for myself or others. I've also costumed theater and opera for many years. I'm a retired English teacher who was known for my patience in helping students improve their writing. I have that same patience when I mentor other costumers or teach someone to sew. Whether you want to make your own clothes or just take up a hem, I can show you how!
I'm a natural-born teacher, and I enjoy sharing my love of creating fun, wearable clothing that fits right and makes the wearer feel good.
Patient. Clear. Resourceful on the spot (we had to look things up online to reassemble bobbin holder). Clearly a wealth of experience.
As soon as I meet new students, I let them tell me their background in sewing. Then, no matter how much the student already knows (from "This is a sewing machine" to "This is how to do a cartridge pleat"), I can help them learn how to sew or how to improve their sewing. I meet them where they are and help them move forward to meet their individual goals.
