About Kim

My love of sewing began in middle school. Learning the basics of sewing is a skill I have valued time and time again over my 40 plus years of sewing. Basic skills of using needle and thread for patching, hemming and sewing on buttons is essential for every person to acquire. The safe handling and instructional use of sewing machines and Sergers is beneficial in obtaining quality results of all sewing projects. Satchels, curtains, draperies, shirts, dresses, and suits are just a few of the items I'm accomplished at teaching. I have 40 years of experience sewing.

Working with students of all ages, preschool - high school, gives me pleasure in knowing I've influenced children and young people to better themselves and acquire skills. My patience and sense of humor helps the learning process seem fun rather than chore-like. Although I am not a licensed teacher, my experience of working with children and young people has been gained through the teaching of church programs, vacation Bible school, church camps and teen centers.

As a dental assistant of 25 years, I've developed the skills of training, comforting, giving encouragement and tactful communication. I've utilized these skills in the sales world (I'm currently a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant), in the work world (dental assistant and seamstress/alterations employee of a seamstress in Chicago, IL).

My sewing skills come from the greatest teachers...middle school and high school sewing courses and experience of trial and error, all of which has led to quality work as a seamstress.

As a mom, teacher and seamstress, I am patient and competent in my ability to help young people develop a lifelong skill they will utilize time and time again. As a courtesy to both of us, I request a 24 hour cancellation policy with the option of rescheduling classes.
