Spring inspirations close to the heart

It's been a life long passion of mine to teach others to sew,make & create for themselves,I started mixing and matching patterns & projects and recycling old to new clothing when I was 14 years old and ever since then it's been the main source of my daily inspiration. I have been so lucky to help my students find their focus,skill, motivation and creative self.
