Seamstress - Instructor
Hi. I'm Whitney. I studied costume and fashion design at Houston Community College and I've been sewing for 37 years. I've sewn all the Disney princess costumes as well as various cartoon/gaming costumes. I've sewn for the costume director at The American School in Japan. I sew purses, home décor and holiday decorations. I do mending and alterations. I recently completed four years managing the Klein Cain High School Marching Band uniforms. I sew tshirt quilts which make the perfect graduation gift. I love sewing my own swimsuits! Who really wants to try on bathing suits at a store anyway? I sew clothes and I'm currently in the process of replacing my wardrobe with an entirely me made ensemble. I previously owned a business for custom sewing, alterations and instruction but I'm taking a break from that to enjoy new projects and new experiences.
I love to spread the love of sewing. I've taught friends, neighbors and school kids the basics of sewing. I love watching the joy in a person's face when they've made something of their own.
Now with mostly grown kids and a traveling husband I have a lot of sewing time on my hands. My goal for sewing is to grow my skill every day and enjoy the craft my family has passed down for generations. I hope to meet others who sew and spread my love of sewing to beginners.
