About Joyce

I have been sewing for over 33 years. I started learning in high school and then just kept going with it. I had gotten married and need a little more income, so I started to take in sewing and doing alterations for people. Then I was asked if I would like to teach sewing, so I took on a couple of students, then I taught at an adult education class.

I also taught crochet classes when I worked for House of Fabrics/So Fro back in 2001. It was a lot of fun and the students also had a blast. Right now I am working doing tailoring for Destinations XL and doing alterations for customers. I love teaching sewing and seeing the students pick out their projects, fabrics, notions then finishing them and seeing them so proud of what they made.

I will travel to the student's home, so that they are comfortable learning on their own sewing machine, find out where the best place is for them to work on their projects. I do require that students give me at least a 2 hour notice of
cancellation.

What makes me an outstanding tutor of sewing is my many years of experience in sewing, pattern making, alterations teaching and tailoring.

I can't wait for you tall call me to make your appointment to start your sewing projects soon today.

Sewing

I have over 33 years of sewing experience. I have worked as a seamstress/tailor for over 20 years, so I know how to fit a person, and know how to alter clothing to fit people. I have also had to remake pattern pieces for customers, so I know how to do pattern making. I have taught sewing to adults and children.
