My degree is in clothing design from the University of Minnesota, but after graduation I continued my studies at the London College of Fashion in the UK. I have worked in the fashion industry for over ten years and in education for four years. After working as a designer, I moved into education and discovered a love for teaching others sewing. I have taught beginner sewing, advanced sewing, and pattern drafting at both the College of Visual Arts (St. Paul) and at MCAD (Minneapolis). My expertise is in teaching adults and young adults. While I was working at CVA I also taught students how to design clothing, so I can also assist students in developing their perspective as a designer as well as learning how to sew! While working in the fashion industry, I experienced all aspects of garment production; from idea conception to manufacturing to selling garments in shops. I have a very in-depth and well rounded background in fashion and sewing which I love to share.

If we work together, I will break down the sewing and design process in a way that makes it accessible and easy to understand for a beginner sewer. As skill and sewing confidence build, I can also teach the more complicated aspects of sewing for those that wants to take it further. One of the best things I have to offer as a tutor is paying attention to how each individual student learns best and working at each person's particular level of experience. The most satisfying aspect of teaching for me is to see a beginner's skills develop and watch them create things that they didn't think were possible! I enjoy and am comfortable teaching all levels of sewing and genuinely love sharing my knowledge with others!
