About Olivia

I am a 19-year-old sophomore at the Honors College at the University of Utah. I am double majoring in Ethnic Studies and Peace and Conflict Studies. As far as sewing goes, I have helped to teach boys and girls in weekly classes and in intensive week-long workshops. These kids were elementary to junior high age and beginner to intermediate in skill level. Outside of sewing, I tutored and helped with homework once a week after school at the Boys and Girls Club for a year. I also spent a few weeks of my summer in Ecuador teaching English in a daycare.

I started sewing lessons myself when I was in sixth grade and continued through my senior year of high school. As I grew older I became great friends with my teacher and began to help her teach her younger students, both in her regular weekly classes and in her once-a-year one week intensive workshops. These students ranged from ages five to fifteen and their experience levels ranged from complete beginner to high intermediate.

In my personal sewing career, I have competed and moved on in a Wool competition three times. My pieces in the competition have always stood out as audience favorites because I have a trendy sense of style and use it when I am sewing. I have also participated in smaller competitions and have won awards. From January to August of 2016, I worked at a high-end prom and pageant store. Here I repaired dresses both in stock and purchased. I have my own sewing machine that I would be happy to use for lessons, or I would not mind using one that you have as well!

I would love to find a sewing buddy soon! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or if you want to meet me.
