Sewing has become a lost art. I believe that everyone should have basic sewing skills, and it doesn’t have to be tedious, frustrating or time-consuming. I consider myself a guerilla seamstress; I don’t use patterns, I rarely use pins and use multiple shortcuts for quick results.
About Sewing Workshops
Whether you’re a beginning or experienced seamstress, or can’t thread a sewing machine…. you’ll learn something new.I teach Guerilla Sewing. It’s the quick and easy way to sew. All my workshops includes basics in sewing machines, sergers, hand-sewing, fabric, mending and alterations. Advances workshops include hot to make garments without patterns with upcycled materials. I teach shortcuts, tricks and designer secrets for professional results.
- Students should bring their own if they have one, but loaner machines are available.
