I have been sewing since the age of 8. I was taught by my mother. In the intervening years I have been certified as a Trained Sewing Educator and a Certified Islander Sewing Systems Instructor.

I teach all levels of sewing from novice to advanced using factory-based techniques so your garments never look "homemade." My garments have won many accolades in competitions and county fairs. My work experience includes working with and learning from Connie Crawford and with the American Sewing Expo.
