Hey and good greetings!
Below are my upcoming online classes. This Saturday we'll begin with Alter Your Clothes Like A Pro and move on from there. Two classes are all new: Draping 101 (Saturdays in July) and Fabric Creations from 2D to 3D (Saturdays in August). Sign up and pay by clicking the links and you will get the Zoom link a couple of days before the first class starts. 4 sessions for $149.
For a free session, join us this Sunday from 5-7 PM at Stitch Therapy! This isn't a class- it's a Zoom get together where we work on our individual craft and sewing projects and catch up with each other. It's good fun and good company. Sign up on the Facebook page or send a note from the contact page.
I am looking forward to creating with you.

Draping is the art of creating clothing using a form and fabric instead of a paper pattern. If you've seen Project Runway, you have seen draping in action. In this class we'll go over the basic principles of draping, and then make a piece of clothing designed by you!
Fabric creations from 2D to 3D

A step beyond Draping 101 for adventurous designers and sewists. Come in with sketches and photographs of clothing designs you want to create, and together we can help make them a reality.

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
