In 2008 I won the Grand Prize from the Simplicity Creative Sewing Contest. The Grand Prize was a trip for two to Paris, France. In addition my garment, titled Kimono Express, is traveling around the U.S. and Canada for a year with the Hoffman Challenge Trunk Show.
I began teaching sewing in the '70s, but I learned how to embroider when I was five years old. Sewing and teaching sewing are two of my passions. If you are a beginner, you will be given a list of sewing supplies and we may even go on a field trip to a fabric store so that you can learn the various properties that fabrics possess in regard to drapability, texture and ease of sewing. You can purchase your supplies while we are at the store.
You will begin with a simple tote bag or purse pattern.
