In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I create using various types of needlework techniques such as crewel, beadwork, and embroidery in new and updated ways often in combination with other techniques.
I love doing Needle felting by hand and machine in garments as a way to 'paint' with fiber, and in home dec and accessories for a new twist in the art of needlework.
I teach needlework along with color and texture skills-training the eye to see how object such as beads, crystals and hardware can combine with sewing skills to create something to reflect the student's unique style.
I focus on the interests of the student while expanding the student's vision and cre8tivity to see art and the world in a new light!
I have been sewing since I was 6 years old and started sewing for others when I was about 17 and graduated with a degree in Fashion design from Mount Mary College. I have been sewing professionally for about 36 years specializing in Custom bridal, evening and special event/costumes for my own business and worked in the textile industry for clothing and upholstery. I teach beginning sewing to couture techniques, quilting, sewing machine skills, home dec, and special interest items, almost anything that involves fabric! I focus on the project the student wants to learn while teaching the skills that will allow the student to Cre8 with confidence for future projects.
