Hello Everyone,

I have taught and trained myself on how to sew and design clothes for the past 38 years. I was born and raised in Long Island and Queens New York. My trade was a gift. I have never attended any schools to learn this trade; it was just something I did naturally. This is how I made a living when I left home at the age of 16.

Slowly, it became a small business and everyone wanted a design by me. My specialty is leather, suede, and denim outfits. Then I started doing prom dresses and weddings. After a short period of time Hair Salons and Clubs wanted me to do Fashion Shows for them and this also gave me a lot of recognition. From all of the publicity that I received, newspapers and magazines wanted me to write a fashion column: The Point of View newspaper based in Wyandanch, New York, and Soul to Soul magazine based in Roosevelt, New York. Then one day I received a call from a client stating that his uncle needed someone to make him clothes because he was very overweight. I wanted to extend myself further so I started teaching my trade to potential students. I started teaching my trade at Hempstead Public Schools (Adult and Community Education Program), EOC (Equal Opportunity Commissions) based in Hempstead, New York, teaching the Basic Sewing Women Program for Displaced Homemakers. This program was funded by the Government. The objective of the 10 week lesson plan was: getting to know your machine and the advantages of having a sewing machine, are you really interested in sewing, what can you accomplish once you have learned how to sew, how much money can be saved and made by learning this trade.

The rewards for teaching my trade was very gratifying to me because it helped people from all walks of life. My students age range was from 5 years of age to 60 years of age.

My methods of tutoring is a 8 week lesson plan:
Week 1. Getting to know your sewing machine and the principal parts and how to care for your machine.
Week 2. Operating the sewing machine, do's and don'ts.
Week 3. Testing the student on the sewing machine.
Week 4. Getting to know a basic pattern, how to cut out a pattern.
Week 5. Studying basic fabrics.
Week 6. Laying and cutting out the pattern on fabric.
Week 7-8. Making the garment.

Basics Of Sewing:

You are about to begin an adventure in creativity; you are going to sew. And you are going to sew well.

Sewing is an art and, as such, demands the discipline of an art. Bring to it desire, enthusiasm, and imagination, and it will give you in return a satisfaction that is unique; the joy of creating something that is truly yours.

I know this for a fact because I've been sewing and designing for 38 years.

When I realized I was a true designer was when I received a Certificate of Achievement from Coast To Coast Designer of the year U.S.A. by Travis W. on August 18, 1989.
