An orange crepe a-line dress,with a beige and orange plaid cape, lit the spark that
inspired me to take up sewing and designing. Making my first garment at age nine I began to sew daily and desired to learn more about sewing ,textile and fashion. I majored in clothing and textiles in high school.Learning basic garment construction,tailoring,pattern drafting millinery, and hand crafts. In college I studied fashion merchandising. Through my business, FSM Designs,I have made clothing, widow treatments and quilts for customers. I have taught at a local shop teaching teens and adults and have taught many private lessons. I enjoy teaching the next generation of designers and sewing specialist, perhaps igniting a spark that will lead them to their dreams of designing for the world.
