I have been sewing and crafting since I was in 3rd grade. My love for creating with color and texture led me to a BFA in fashion design from Parson's School of Design. I have also supplemented my degree with classes in crochet, basketry, embroidery, soft sculpture. Besides teaching you the basic skills, I will guide you through all the steps of your project so you will experience the thrill and satisfaction of bringing an idea to reality.

I learned these techniques from my grandmother who mastered them as a young woman in Russia and have utilized them over the years to embellish the clothing and home products I designed and sold for my business Kitsch'n Couture (1989-2000).
Along with the basic technical skills we learn the history of this art and gain a greater appreciation for it.
