A new concept recalling the age-old tradition of sewing together in a social setting.
We are a gathering place for people who sew or want to learn to sew – the place to find like-minded creative people! We offer classes for the absolute beginner or the advanced sewer who wants to learn specialized techniques. All in the name of fun and sewing!
Our teaching philosophy is project based, we focus on enjoying the process and having something to show for your efforts. Our goal is to foster creativity through hands-on learning. Classes are taught in English but we welcome non-native English speakers who want to improve their English. Teachers speak Spanish as well.
Mother, maker, teacher, stitcher, quilter, jewellery maker, collector of things. I have been sewing since I was 10 and teaching formally since 2012. I love bringing the joy of making to my students and helping them explore their creativity.
My background is handsewing and historical clothing for children & women. I trained in draping and cutting by geometry through a 7 years apprenticeship in the Historic Trades Dept. At the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
Embroidery and doll clothing are my specialty, but I love historical costuming too.
