About Tara

Have you always wanted to learn to sew but were intimidated by sewing machines? Have you ever thought "I'd like to make that!" while browsing Pinterest? Does the thought of buying and reading a commercial pattern make your head spin? These are all things I will help walk you through.

I have been sewing since 2013 and have completed projects that range from quilts to baby items to adult clothing to leather bags and accessories. I work with a variety of machines from new/modern sewing machines to vintage sewing machines to sergers and cover stitch machines to industrial sewing machines. I also collect and repair vintage sewing machines.

I would love to help you learn and love the art of sewing and to help foster your creative endeavors.

My knowledge of various types of machines along with variety of projects I've completed.

Please contact me with any questions or to learn more about how I can help you become a successful sewer.
