My Experience


Of Students

My instructors and I have taught hundreds of students over the past several years.  We also have many students who have been coming to camps and classes for years!


Lesson Plans Available

All of our sewing class lesson plans are tried and true, tested in our own studio before making their way here for you to use in teaching your own sewing classes.


Years of Experience

I built my own sewing studio over many years and many ups and downs, and I'm so glad I can share those lessons with people like you!
