About Lissa

I am a seamstress and a designer with over 30 years experience in all types of sewing and product design. I fell in love with sewing at the age of 10; it was a great way to get out of doing the dishes! My mother taught me the basics. I learned sewing techniques and pattern making in design school, and filled in the rest through lots trial and error.

I have sewn or designed just about everything from wedding gowns to drapes. I filled in my education by studying interior design, which has led me to design children's furniture and bedding as well as design work for Disney World.

I am a big believer in "keep trying till you get it right" and mistakes are an important part of the design process. Sewing is a wonderful tool that helps to bring your ideas to life! Since sewing and designing are a creative process, we can set our own pace to your individual needs. I can also help you learn standards and practices such as organizing your thoughts as well as proper sewing techniques. Let's get started!
