I own Little Pincushion Studio, a sweet little space where I teach many little sewing pixies everything they need to know to go forth and conquer the world of sewing and creating. When I am not teaching, I am busy coming up with a million and one projects for my kids sewing classes and designing quilt fabric for Windham Fabrics. They have hundreds of classes in their library, making it very likely that you will find something for all the creative folks in your family, big and small.
