Sewing is one of my all-time life passions. It calms me down, energizes my creative center, and provides me with an outlet that improves my confidence and self-esteem. For the past three years (what?!) I’ve been sewing for others, teaching classes & lessons, and taking on large scale alterations jobs.
If you’re curious about sewing in 2018, here are three ways you can work with me:
Take a sewing class!
I offer sewing classes for seamstesses of all skill levels every month. Sewing 101, which is for complete beginners, and Denim Bootcamp are my two most popular classes. This year I’ll be expanding into shorter, more topical workshops to include easy alterations & home decor, as well as offering some weekend bootcamps on fitting & more complex garment contruction.
Classes are a great way for you to learn the basics, meet new friends, and have pretty extensive individual help in a classroom setting of beginners. I teach all classes at Modern Studio, which is located in the downtown north neighborhood of Happy Holler. Classes are announced on my Facebook page as well as this site 3-4 weeks in advance of the start date.
Commission a custom garment.
If you’re looking for the ideal garment but can’t seem to find it, you’re in luck! I work with clients of all ages & body types to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind garments that meet their unique style. We start with body measurements, a design consultation, and a fitting session before moving on to the final masterpiece.
A custom garment is like no other piece of clothing you will ever wear. Perfectly fitted to YOUR unique body, a custom garment ensures proper fit, superior construction & longevity, as well as being consistent with your style. And, if you’re interested in a one-in-a-million dress for your wedding day, I work with brides as well. Custom garment consultations are scheduled individually as convenient.
Take an individual sewing lesson.
Maybe you know the basics of garment construction, but need specific assistance with an individual project — either way, I offer individual lessons scheduled to work around your schedule. You choose our topic, and I prepare a lesson outline. This can be something as specific as fitting, or simply working through the construction of a new-to-you garment.
