Sewing Events & Workshops


Sew the Classic Shirt


If you know your way around a sewing machine, can sew straight, and are ready to tackle truly tailored garments, this course is for you. While most classes are for intermediate sewers, I believe a beginner will walk away with a better understanding of how to sew garments.

Once you learn to make your shirt to your own satisfaction, your investment in yourself will have paid for itself 3 or 4 times over. The only thing between you and a customed tailored shirt is practice. After sewing a classic shirt, a dress and jacket are right around the corner.

This masterclass will be released in 2022 at the full price of $225 and coincide with the release of my rebranded website. I am offering four individuals inside access to this course for a nominal fee. You will also have access to the expanded masterclass at a 50% discount.

This insider course will run Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m. EST starting December 4 through December 16 with the final class on Tuesday, December 21. I’d be honored to help you start your handmade wardrobe and celebrate with you as your family and friends ohh and ahh at your accomplishment. Will you join me?

After you register – you’ll get invited to a secret Facebook group where I’ll be offering in-depth coaching, training, and conversations I’m not sharing anywhere else.
