Thank you for stopping by! I just wanted to post a quick update for those of you who are new and interested in scheduling a lesson. My husband and I are expecting our first child in November, and I am officially on maternity leave from now until January 2020. You can still browse the types of lessons that I offer, and I will respond to any email questions that you have.

If you are interested in private lessons for your area of sewing and garment design interest, please contact me. I keep a waiting list and can let you know when spots become available when I start back in the new year. You can just shoot me an email and I will keep you posted.

Thanks,

Andrea
