I am a native of Detroit Michigan, who loves fashion. I love to see men and women well dressed. From head to toe. Where their style tells a little about them. You know the saying first impression count. Without you opening your month people start reading the cover of the book.
I love to make my customers garments fit them to a tee. The fit is a bulls-eye fit.
My second passion is teaching my art to all ages. I love my Summer Sewing Camp. This camp brings out all creativity and energy to their designs. Our classes always teach the latest techniques and sewing secrets.
