I am Lisa and I am SewCre8ive! I teach sewing
of all types: Garment, Home Dec, Quilting, Machine skills, Special Interest Items and Techniques, etc.
I have been sewing since I was 6 years old. Sewing is my passion and my business
and I love to teach Sewists of all ages these wonderful skills so they, too, can Cre8!
I have my degree in Fashion Design from Mount Mary College. I worked in the Clothing Industry at Florence Eiseman, Artcraft Industries for commercial upholstery, and a few other small businesses. I ran my own business specializing in Custom Bridal, Eveningwear, Pageant Gowns and Irish Dance costumes.
I teach many classes specifically to help students learn to sew and use their sewing machine and attachments by cre8ing fun and interesting projects to develop skills.
