I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I have written books about sewing for children and adults and I'm the indie designer’s patternmaking secret weapon. I've taught video and in-person classes to anyone who would listen since 2008. I believe that sewing clothes is a radical act of self-love that increases your sense of self-worth. I'm basically your sewing fairy godmother.

If you’re local to me, you may be interested in a couple classes I’ll be teaching for Beginners and a workshop for Intermediate sewing enthusiasts over the next few months:

Baby Gifts for Beginners

First up:  THIS Saturday (November 17th from 11a-2p) at the cozy and lovely Pot & Box in Ann Arbor, I’ll teach you how to make an adorable baby shower gift – even if you only know how to sew a (straight-ish) line.

You’ll leave with two burp cloths, a bib, and a coordinating embellished onesie.

Holiday PJs for Beginners

On Dec. 1 in adorable Ann Arbor, you can learn to make a set of Holiday PJs for kids of any age (or for yourself, if you want!)  We’ll make a pair of pull-on pj pants from quilting cotton or flannel, and we’ll applique on a purchased t-shirt for a matching set.  You’ll want to make them for every kid on your list!

Again, this class is for beginners – all are welcome!

Register for this session at the Pot & Box online store.

The Perfect Dress Workshop

It’s back!  This time we’ll be making Washi Dresses at the Material Girls in Dearborn, MI.  Over two Saturdays in January (the 19th & 26th), we’ll make a muslin and learn some fitting techniques (specifically bust and bodice adjustments), then construct a beautifully fitting dress you’ll want to wear all the time.

If you’ve been dying to sew for yourself, but are consistently frustrated with the results, this workshop will give you the confidence to tackle sewing patterns once again – or for the first time!
